Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) is a type of procedure used to address minor and major dental and skeletal abnormalities impacting the mouth, face, and upper or lower jaws. It may be recommended for patients who suffer from chronic jaw pain, TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) or migraines, severely worn teeth, difficulty eating or swallowing, and a number of other life-altering symptoms. The primary focus of jaw surgery is to improve function, including the ability to bite and chew, swallow, breathe, hear and communicate properly. However, many patients also benefit from enhancements in facial esthetics and contours following jaw surgery procedures. As oral surgeons specializing in complex jaw surgery, our team at JawFixers are not only highly experienced in this solution, but dedicated to leading and lasting results as well.
Jaw surgery is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. This specialist is trained in a wide variety of surgical techniques, and best suited to determine the right type of procedure for your needs. A combination of jaw surgery and orthodontics may be needed in many cases. When the upper and lower jaw do not line up as they should, the teeth are unable to bite together properly, impacting oral function. In such a case, our team of oral surgeons collaborate with your general dentist and orthodontist, streamlining your care to create the improved quality of life you deserve.
