With the development of the Kurpis Nonsurgical Underbite Correction Method™ , class three malocclusion and mandibular prognathism (protruding lower jaw) can be visually corrected.
Most people with a protruding lower jaw are told they will need to undergo a corrective jaw surgery procedure, known as orthognathic surgery, which is performed by a maxillofacial oral surgeon. This surgical method, combined with additional orthodontic treatment, can take 1-2 years to complete. Many of these patients do not want to commit to such a lengthy and complex surgical solution. The Kurpis Non-Surgical Method™ also eliminates the risk of complications that may be associated with Orthognathic surgery.
The Kurpis Method ™, is suitable for patients who want a more conservative, nonsurgical approach that can be accomplished quickly. The Kurpis Nonsurgical Underbite Correction Method™, can be completed in as few as two visits (after the initial consultation).
