Congenital jaw deformities can lead to chronic pain, difficulty chewing and swallowing, or a compromised facial aesthetic. Corrective surgery can provide lasting relief and restoration. At the Center For Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we boast a proud legacy of clinical excellence, offering decades of experience performing safe and successful jaw surgeries.
What Types of Problems Does Corrective Jaw Surgery Fix?
Corrective jaw surgery may address any skeletal misalignment involving the jawbones, including those that contribute to chronic pain and other complications. In addition, our surgeons provide restoration for patients who have experienced broken jaws due to traumatic accidents.
The First Steps
Your surgical journey will begin with a consultation. During this appointment, your surgeon will examine your jaw, collect medical images, and discuss potential treatment options. This is also a good chance for you to ask any questions, go over sedation options, and discuss financing and insurance considerations.
You will be placed under full anesthesia for your procedure, ensuring you are comfortable throughout the surgery. Your surgeon may cut or reposition your jawbone to provide healthy alignment. Following your surgery, you will complete your care with an orthodontist, wearing braces for a few weeks or months to bring your teeth into their proper position.
While recovery can vary by patient, you should anticipate a few days of rest and recovery. You will also need to start with a diet of soft foods and liquids, transitioning back to your regular eating habits as your jaw heals.
