Corrective Jaw Surgery

 
Are you struggling with the way you chew? Want a better smile? After braces and other orthodontic work the next appropriate step may be corrective jaw surgery. This surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, corrects irregularities of the jaw bones and realigns the jaws and teeth to improve the way they work.

This may be the best option if you have jaw problems that can’t be resolved with orthodontics alone. Most times, you must have braces on your teeth before surgery and during recovery after surgery until healing and alignment are complete. The intricate nature of this surgery, it is not done by your regular orthodontist, but by a oral and jaw and face expert, also known as a maxillofacial surgeon. Your orthodontist will work closely with your maxillofacial surgeon to determine your treatment plan. Jaw surgery is usually done after bone growth stops, around ages 14 to 16 years for females and ages 17 to 21 years for males. Making these corrections may also improve your facial appearance.
