Q. what is surgical orthodontics?
A. On rare occasions, we have patients whose jaws have grown in such a way that orthodontics alone cannot correct the bite
In these instances, we need to do braces or Invisalign in conjunction with surgery
Q. who performs the surgery?
A. Dr. Cooke will do the orthodontic treatment and will refer you to a trusted oral
surgeon to perform the surgery.
Q. do I need a referral to come see you?
Q. how much does this cost?
A. At your consultation, Dr. Cooke will determine your treatment needs and her treatment coordinator will review your investment. Dr. Cooke and her team will find an affordable plan that fits your budget. The surgical fee will be determined by your surgeon and health insurance plan.
Q. Can I do Invisalign treatment with surgery?
Kaiser Surgeons require braces on all the teeth.
Some surgeons will do orthognathic (jaw) surgery with Invisalign.
The surgeon we use will often be determined by your health insurance plan.

Q. do you have clear braces?
A. Yes! We use self-ligating braces that are clear for front teeth. In the back we use
metal braces to help with the biting forces associated with eating, grinding and clenching. Find out more about our braces by clicking HERE.
Q. when is a good time to begin surgical orthodontics?
A. Dr. Cooke wants to see you NOW! She can identify the issues that need to be corrected during your complimentary consultation and exam and tell you when the BEST time to correct your bite will be. Often, surgical orthodontics is done once growth is completed. Complimentary annual visits with Dr. Cooke helps her identify the best time for treatment.
