Jaw Surgery

Correct structural issues and enhance facial balance with our precise jaw surgery procedures. Expert care for a better quality of life.

Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a significant medical procedure aimed at correcting irregularities in the jaw bones, improving facial appearance, and ensuring that teeth meet correctly and function properly. At Select Dental Office, we specialize in jaw surgery that not only enhances the functionality of your jaw but also improves the overall aesthetic of your face.

What is Jaw Surgery?

Jaw surgery involves the surgical realignment of the jaw bones. It is typically recommended for patients with an improper bite or whose jaw structure causes difficulty with chewing, talking, or sleeping. These issues might be due to congenital conditions, developmental abnormalities, or trauma.

Benefits of Jaw Surgery

  • Improved Chewing, Speaking, and Breathing: Correct alignment of the jaws enhances these essential functions, which can significantly impact daily life.
  • Enhanced Facial Aesthetics: Jaw surgery can dramatically improve facial symmetry and balance, contributing to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  • Long-term Oral Health Benefits: Properly aligned jaws reduce wear and tear on teeth, decreasing the risk of future dental problems.

The Jaw Surgery Process

  1. Consultation and Planning: Your journey begins with a comprehensive evaluation, including X-rays, 3D images, and physical exams to fully understand your jaw’s structure. We then discuss your goals and outline the surgical plan.
  2. Surgical Procedure: Jaw surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the complexity, it may involve one or both jaws and include modifications to the bone, which is then secured with screws or plates.
  3. Recovery: Post-surgical recovery typically involves a brief hospital stay followed by several weeks of at-home recovery. Swelling and discomfort are managed with medications.
  4. Follow-Up Care: Regular follow-up appointments are crucial to monitor healing and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
