Corrective jaw surgery is a medical procedure that can help correct jaw irregularities and improve your quality of life. At Tower Dental, our team of professional dentists from various specializations work together to create a customized plan that provides you with the best possible outcome.
Corrective jaw surgery involves physically moving the bone of the jaw or adding or removing bone tissue to achieve balanced proportions. This procedure can improve speech problems, enhance chewing, fix facial proportions, improve breathing, alleviate sleep apnea, and provide many other benefits.
At Tower Dental, we use the latest digital technologies to create realistic 3D models to help you visualize how the surgery will take place and how it will affect your face. We involve you in every step of the process to ensure that you are comfortable and informed.
To determine if you are suitable for corrective jaw surgery, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination and obtain x-rays to evaluate the structure of your jaws. It is important to note that orthodontics must be tried beforehand, as many cases of jaw misalignment can be fixed with traditional braces.
During the surgery, your doctor will operate from inside the mouth, so scars will not be visible. After creating the necessary movements in the jaw bone, your doctor will secure the jaw with screws. The procedure for the upper and lower jaws occurs separately during surgery.
Results of corrective jaw surgery are immediate, but healing takes time. Typically, initial healing takes around 6 weeks, but final results can take up to 12 weeks. For better results, orthodontic treatment should begin after 6 months to ensure that your alignment is perfect.
In summary, corrective jaw surgery is a highly effective medical procedure that can provide numerous benefits. At Tower Dental, our team of professionals will work with you to create a customized plan and provide the best possible outcome. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
