Corrective Jaw Surgery

Lakeway Corrective Jaw Surgery

 

Do you live in the Lakeway area and need Corrective Jaw Surgery?

When jaws are misaligned, an orthognathic surgery is needed to correct this issue. This corrective jaw surgery is unlike orthodontic surgery, which straightens teeth. This procedure repositions the mismatched jaws and fixes the issue. To be in need of this surgery, the upper and lower jaws must be misaligned or teeth must not meet correctly or fit with the jaws. This procedure will improve facial appearance and structure but will ensure that teeth will function properly and fit properly into the jaw and meet correctly.

Do You Need Corrective Jaw Surgery?

When the upper and lower jaws grow at different rates, the jaws become misaligned. This causes problems with chewing, talking, oral health, appearance of the face and can be associated with TMJ or pain.

Problems with the following could be signs that you need this surgery:

  • Chewing, biting or swallowing

  • Speech problems

  • Breathing problems

  • Chronic jaw or TMJ pain

  • Open bite

  • Protruding jaw

If any of these issues sound familiar to you, consulting with an orthodontist or oral surgeon is encouraged. These professionals can help further determine if you are in need of this surgery. They can determine this through clinical and radiographic examinations. From these results, they can further determine whether or not you are having the issues associated with this surgery.
