Corrective Jaw Surgery

San Marcos Corrective Jaw Surgery


Do you need Corrective Jaw Surgery and live in San Marcos, Texas?

Misaligned jaws can cause several problems for an individual, and typically need to be corrected with Corrective Jaw Surgery, which is an orthognathic surgery. Orthognathic surgery is often confused with orthodontic surgery, due to similar names, but orthodontic surgeries and procedures involve the straightening of teeth, while orthognathic surgeries do not. This surgery requires that the patient has a misalignment with the upper and lower jaws and/or teeth do not meet correctly or fit into the jaw. This surgery has been known to make teeth functional again and improve facial appearance and bone structure.

The Symptoms of Someone Who Needs Corrective Jaw Surgery:

The main issue associated with jaws that are in need of corrective jaw surgery is that the upper and lower jaws grow at different rates. This can cause problems with speaking, eating, the appearance of the face, and can be associated with oral health issues and pain.

Symptoms To Watch Out For:

  • Issues with chewing, biting or swallowing

  • Open bite problem

  • Jaw pain

  • TMJ

  • Issues with speaking

  • Problems with breathing

  • Having a protruding jaw

If any of these sound familiar to you, or you suffer from any of these symptoms, consult an oral surgeon as soon as possible, for you may be in need of corrective jaw surgery. These professionals will tell you if you need this surgery through examinations (clinical and radiographic).
