What Is Jaw Surgery?
Jaw surgery addresses severe problems that require more than orthodontics treatment. This procedure usually focuses on repositioning the jaw’s alignment.
Surgical procedures go hand-in-hand with orthodontic treatments. For example, braces will position the teeth in the right position so that the surgeons know where to orientate the jaws.
Corrective jaw operations help with facial and jaw structure. The procedure can help with a wide range of issues, including:
- Sleep apnoea
- Mismatch between the upper and lower jaw
The result is facial harmony and improved positioning of the jaw, along with teeth of course.
Jaw surgery is not something you can self-diagnose. Before delving into research on deciding if this is the right treatment option for you, consult an expert. We are here to help. Whether it is to correct bite problems, severe misalignment, or facial disproportion. Our team of experts are here to support you all the way from your initial consultation to a smooth recovery.
