By combining orthodontics with jaw surgery we are able to correct skeletal and dental abnormalities that may make it difficult for adults to chew, speak, or even breathe comfortably. In addition to correcting your bite you may experience a dramatic improvement in your appearance after your procedure.
Conditions that may indicate the need for corrective jaw surgery (in addition to braces) include:
- A severe overbite or underbite (indicated by an obvious space between the upper and lower teeth when the mouth is closed)
- An unbalanced facial appearance from the front or side
- An extreme facial injury or birth defect
There is no reason to live with painful, uncomfortable jaw conditions. Receiving treatment, which may include surgery and orthodontic treatment, is not only a benefit to your physical appearance, it is also a benefit to your health and happiness.
