Jaw Surgery

If you're feeling down about your smile or appearance, or if you have difficulty chewing, talking, and sleeping, then corrective jaw surgery may be the answer for you! Orthognathic surgery can fix any abnormalities of the facial bones, including your jaw and teeth. And with orthodontic treatment, you'll see a drastic improvement in your smile and overall appearance.

What Is Orthognathic Surgery?

Orthognathic surgery, also called corrective jaw surgery, is performed to correct conditions of the jaw and face that can't be easily resolved with orthodontics alone. These conditions include:

  • An improper bite (malocclusion)
  • Teeth that are crowded or too far apart
  • A misaligned jaw
  • A birth defect
  • Sleep apnea

What Is the Procedure for Jaw Surgery?

The first step to know if you’ll need orthognathic surgery is to visit Dr. Taddeo for an orthodontic consultation. He will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, and jaws to determine if surgery is right for you. 

The next step is to have surgery. This is usually performed in a hospital or outpatient surgical center. Depending on your specific condition, the type of surgery will vary. However, all procedures involve making incisions in the mouth and repositioning the bones of the jaw.

What Are the Benefits of Jaw Surgery?

Jaw surgery can have a profound effect on your life. Not only will it improve your appearance, but it will also help you to chew, speak, and sleep more comfortably. Additionally, it can alleviate pain in the jaw and head, as well as TMJ disorder.
