Do you live in the Marble Falls area in Texas and need Corrective Jaw Surgery?
Corrective Jaw Surgery is an orthognathic surgery in which jaws that are misaligned are corrected. Unlike orthodontic surgery, which deals with straightening teeth, orthognathic surgery, (corrective jaw surgery) is a surgery in which a misaligned jaw is repositioned. This surgery requires that the upper and lower jaws be misaligned and/or the teeth do not meet correctly or fit within the jaws. This surgery will not only improve facial appearance and bone structure, but it will keep teeth and jaws functioning properly!
How To Know If You Need Corrective Jaw Surgery:
Misaligned jaws are usually caused by the upper and lower jaws growing at different rates. Jaws growing at different rates cause problems with eating, speaking, with oral health, bone structure, some pain and can be associated with TMJ.
Some symptoms to keep an eye out for:
Chewing, biting or swallowing problems
Chronic jaw or TMJ pain
If any of these symptoms sound familiar, consult with an oral surgeon as soon as possible. These professionals can diagnose what the issue is and tell you whether or not you are in need of this surgery. These oral health professionals will conduct radiographic and clinical exams to help them further understand what is happening in your jaw.
