Orthognathic Surgery

Explaining Orthognathic Surgery?

Orthognathic surgery is a type of surgery which is performed by an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon, or an OMS. The procedure, which is done in a hospital setting involves realigning and straightening the jaws. This is done through the use of surgical plates, templates, wires and screws.

Who should invest in this type of treatment?

This treatment option is a solution to help correct severe malocclusion, which is an improper bite. It has to be severe enough to hamper daily activities such as eating and talking. It can make it difficult to simply chew up your food properly. In some cases, it complicates sleep apnea too. Many people can have associated headaches, gum discomfort or joint pain. People who should consider Orthognathic surgery include:

  • Babies born with a birth defect
  • People who suffer from chronic TMJ pain
  • Involuntarily breathing through the mouth
  • People who cannot get their lips together without having to strain
  • After trauma or an injury to the face or jaw
  • Someone who has had a tumor in the jaw
  • People with too much space between their upper and lower teeth even when their mouth is closed ( also called an open bite)
  • A receding chin or chaw

Properly aligned teeth not only give you a beautiful smile, but they can significantly improve your overall dental health.
