Do you have problems biting or chewing your food? Do you suffer from persistent jaw joint pain (TMJ)? Do you snore in your sleep? If so, you may be a candidate for corrective jaw surgery.
What Is Corrective Jaw Surgery?
Corrective jaw surgery is performed by your orthodontist and an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. It will help correct a wide range of irregularities with your jaw or teeth which can improve chewing, speaking, and breathing.
What Is Involved In Corrective Jaw Surgery?
Corrective jaw surgery may reposition all or parts of the upper jaw, lower jaw, and chin. In some cases, bone may be added, taken away, or reshaped. Surgical plates, screws, wires, and rubber bands may be used to hold your jaws in their new positions.
