What Is Chelsea Corrective Jaw Surgery?
You may also have read the term orthognathic surgery, but, in any case, corrective jaw surgery still refers to the invasive procedures (that is, surgery) that aim to correct growth irregularities of your jaw bones and improve their function.
As you may know, here at SBK Orthodontics, we take pride in delivering high-quality orthodontic care to our patients, which means we correct dental and jaw alignment with non-invasive procedures. However, some cases will require additional treatment options, and this is where corrective jaw surgery plays such an important part.
Who Needs Corrective Jaw Surgery in Chelsea?
Whenever orthodontics alone cannot fix dental alignment problems, we might need to enlist the help of another specialist to plan your treatment carefully and deliver the help you require. You might need corrective jaw surgery if you identify with any of the following:
- Do you have any difficulty chewing, swallowing, or biting down on food?
- Do you feel chronic pain around your jaw when you talk or yawn?
- Have you noticed you suffer from constant headaches?
- Have you noticed excessive dental wear?
- Do you consider your face looks too asymmetrical?
- Have you ever suffered considerable trauma directly to your face, or did you endure facial injury during your childhood?
- Do you have a receding chin or protruding jaw?
- Are you experiencing difficulty closing down your mouth and making your lips meet without straining your facial muscles?
In any such case, corrective jaw surgery can be of great help. Please keep in mind we usually reserve this procedure for after the patient has finished their period of dental growth and development.
Get Help From Your Trusted Chelsea Orthodontist
Dr. Stieper, Dr. Brust, and Dr. Khatib will be thrilled to welcome you to their office and start this journey as soon as possible to deliver the best results. Corrective jaw surgery can help you when your jaw problems are not something we can solve with braces or Invisalign clear aligners alone. However, you should still note that many patients will still have to wear an orthodontic appliance for several months in preparation for this surgical procedure.
We hope to see you soon around our office. Please, make sure you get in touch with us to learn more about these treatments and how they can help you achieve amazing results.
