Jaw Surgery

Such surgery is necessary when the jaws don’t meet correctly and/or the teeth within your mouth don’t fit properly. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and corrective jaw surgery repositions misaligned jaws. This not only improves facial structure, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly.

People who can benefit from jaw surgery include those with an improper bite or jaws that are simply not positioned correctly. Jaw growth is a gradual process and in some instances, the upper and lower jaws may grow at different rates; as a result, there may exist a host of problems that can affect chewing, speech, long-term oral health and bone structure.

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

Jaw surgery is not always necessary, but to see if you can benefit from this procedure please contact us today.
