Corrective Jaw Surgery

Posted on 7/4/2022 by Office
Corrective Jaw SurgeryOrthognathic surgery aims to realign the jaws and teeth and ultimately correct any irregularities in the jaw bone. It's possible that fixing these imperfections in your facial structure could make you look years younger.

Jaw surgery is an option that may need to be explored as a sort of treatment for your condition if you have difficulties with your jaw that cannot be fixed by orthodontics. Jaw surgery may correct several issues with the jaw. Most patients have orthodontic equipment placed in their mouths before and after surgery to straighten their teeth and promote quicker recovery. This process is repeated until the teeth have been positioned in their permanent places. Our maxillofacial surgeon and orthodontist will work together to figure out the ideal treatment plan for you.

Why you need Jaw Surgery

Orthognathic (jaw) surgery may be beneficial for people who have difficulty swallowing, talking, sleeping, or doing daily tasks due to jaw, tooth, or face asymmetries. A projecting jaw, a congenital deformity, or an imbalanced facial appearance can all be corrected with these operations.
