Jaw Bone Graphic

Do you deal with jaw pain all day and all night? Are you unable to get enough rest or eat or even smile like you used to because of pain in your jaw? Did you know that misalignment of the jaw, be it from trauma or genetics, can cause an interference with simple daily functions? Your jaw health can impact daily activities such as sleeping, eating, and even breathing. The solution to resolve this issue is orthognathic or corrective jaw surgery. A dentist can help you decide whether this surgery is the best option for you with the symptoms that you have and have you smiling like you once were in no time. 


How Does Jaw Surgery Work?

A series of providers, from an orthodontist along with a general dentist, work together to determine if this surgery is the best surgery for you. You might have to dedicate to braces and commit long term. The surgery will take place in a hospital setting with anesthesiologists on hand. A complete and thorough surgical planning will be done by your surgeons on the day before the surgery takes places to make sure that the surgery and recovery is smooth sailing. Most patients spend at least one night at the hospital after the surgery is completed. With overnight observation, the team will ensure you have correct oral function and restored balance to your bite. This will give you a boost in confidence. Tips on how to recover and minimize your healing time will be giving to you once you are discharged from the hospital.

What To Expect after Jaw Surgery:

  • Improved chewing and biting
  • Swallowing easier
  • No more headaches of pain from TMJ
  • Less swear and stress on teeth
  • Proper alignment of teeth
  • More symmetrical facial profile of the side and front
