Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is one of the top orthognathic surgery practices in the nation. Orthognathic surgery (also called corrective jaw surgery) is an umbrella term that refers to any procedure that corrects a bite problem or skeletal issue with the upper or lower jaw.
Below are a few reasons we encourage patients to consider jaw surgery:
Prevents dental problems- Alignment problems can cause excessive tooth wear, which can lead to more dental health problems. Orthognathic procedures can prevent this wear.
Better eating function-Bite problems can make it difficult to chew or digest certain foods. After treatment, many patients find that they can enjoy a more varied diet.
Improves breathing/sleep apnea symptoms- It can be difficult for some patients to close their lips fully, causing issues with mouth breathing. Sleep apnea can also develop when the position of the jaw restricts the airway. Jaw surgery can correct or improve these types of breathing problems.
Improvements in facial balance and symmetry. Oral surgeons understand the importance of preserving your appearance during treatment. This treatment can improve the balance of the facial features.
