Dental Jaw Surgery

Imagine a symphony of precision, where the artistry of dentistry meets the transformative power of surgery. Dental jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a remarkable procedure that harmonizes your jaw structures, unlocking a world of improved oral health, functionality, and aesthetics. Let’s explore the intricacies of dental jaw surgery and its potential to create a masterpiece of your smile.

Dental jaw surgery is a specialized surgical procedure aimed at correcting significant abnormalities or irregularities in the jaws, including the upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible). It addresses various concerns such as:

1. Malocclusion: Severe dental misalignment, like an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite, that cannot be fully corrected through orthodontic treatment alone.

2. Jaw Size Discrepancies: Significant discrepancies in jaw size, where the upper and lower jaws do not align harmoniously, leading to functional and aesthetic challenges.

3. Facial Asymmetry: Imbalances in the facial structure due to irregular jaw growth, resulting in a lopsided appearance or uneven bite.

4. Breathing Difficulties: Structural issues affecting the airway, such as a narrow palate or recessed chin, which can impede proper breathing and contribute to sleep apnea or other breathing disorders.

The dental jaw surgery process typically involves the following steps:

1. Comprehensive Evaluation: Our skilled dental and surgical team will conduct a thorough evaluation, which may include imaging techniques like X-rays, CT scans, or 3D models, to assess your jaw structures and plan the surgical approach.

2. Treatment Planning: Based on the evaluation, a personalized treatment plan will be developed, incorporating orthodontic treatment and the surgical procedure. This plan is tailored to your unique needs, addressing your specific jaw concerns.

3. Preparatory Phase: Prior to surgery, orthodontic treatment may be initiated to align the teeth properly, ensuring the best possible results. This may involve the use of braces or clear aligners.

4. Surgical Procedure: Under the skilled hands of our experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon, the dental jaw surgery will be performed. The surgery may involve repositioning the jaws, correcting jaw size discrepancies, and addressing other concerns to achieve proper alignment and balance.

5. Post-Surgery Recovery: After the surgery, a period of healing and recovery is essential. Our team will provide detailed instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments.

Dental jaw surgery offers life-changing benefits, including improved bite function, enhanced facial symmetry, increased airway space, and enhanced overall oral health. It is a transformative journey that harmonizes the intricate structures of your jaw, creating a smile that radiates confidence and beauty.
