ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY (JAW SURGERY)

OMS looking at xray

Orthognathic surgery is needed when jaws don’t meet correctly and/or teeth don’t seem to fit with jaws. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and corrective jaw surgery repositions a misaligned jaw. This not only improves facial appearance but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly.

WHO NEEDS ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY?

People who can benefit from orthognathic surgery include those with an improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly. Jaw growth is a gradual process and, in some instances, the upper and lower jaws may grow at different rates. The result can be a host of problems that can affect chewing function, speech, long-term oral health and appearance. Injury to the jaw and birth defects can also affect jaw alignment. Orthodontics alone can correct bite problems when only the teeth are involved. Orthognathic surgery may be required for the jaws when repositioning in necessary.

Difficulty in the following areas should be evaluated:

·      Difficulty in chewing, biting or swallowing

·      Speech problems

·      Chronic jaw or TMJ pain

·      Open bite

·      Protruding jaw

·      Breathing problems

Any of these symptoms can exist at birth, be acquired after birth as a result of hereditary or environmental influences, or as a result of trauma to the face. Before any treatment begins, a consultation will be held to perform a complete examination with x-rays. During the pre-treatment consultation process, feel free to ask any questions that you have regarding your treatment. When you are fully informed about the aspects of your care, you and your dental team can make the decision to proceed with treatment together.

JAW SURGERY CONSULTATION

Before treating an improper bite, we’ll need to see you for a consultation to evaluate if jaw surgery is the best solution for you. During the consultation, you’ll meet with a specialist at Aspire Surgical and have X-rays taken. We’ll be sure to answer your questions about the jaw surgery procedure and outline what you can expect as we work to realign and perfect your smile.
