Orthognathic Surgery Offers Hope

Also known as corrective jaw surgery, orthognathic surgery refers to any surgical procedure that is aimed at correcting a wide variety of dental and facial skeletal issues to improve their function and appearance. Orthognathic surgery, when needed, can give you back your quality of life and can have a significant impact on your facial appearance, as it enhances confidence and self-esteem.

When Orthognathic Surgery Is Needed 

If you find it painful or difficult to eat, speak, have TMD, OSA, recent facial trauma or braces to straighten your teeth but still experiencing issues with your jaw and no other treatment options have helped, orthognathic surgery may be right for you. 

How Orthognathic Surgery Can Help

Orthognathic surgery has the ability to enhance your life, giving you the comfort needed to eat properly and have freedom from pain. Because the decision to have jaw surgery is such a serious one, here are the benefits of orthognathic procedures:

  • Improve bite and make it easy to chew
  • Improve your speech
  • Correct bite problems like underbites, overbites, and crossbites.
  • Minimize wearing and breaking down of the teeth
  • Help the lips to fully close 
  • Relieve pain from TMJ disorder 
  • Repair birth defects or any facial injury which can lead to higher confidence
  • Get relief from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
