Corrective Jaw Surgery
Corrective jaw surgery, known medically as orthognathic surgery, treats a wide array of dental and skeletal differences that can affect your health and your quality of life.
One of the most common reasons that this type of surgery is performed is to improve the alignment of jaws in the case of a severe over or under bite. Not only does jaw misalignment affect a person’s appearance, it can also have a dramatic impact on their health.
If you experience any of the following issues, you may be a good candidate for corrective jaw surgery:
- Difficulty biting into or chewing your food
- Challenges swallowing
- Chronic pain in the jaw or the jaw joint (your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ)
- Worn down teeth
- Frequent headaches or migraines
Corrective surgery may also be needed to correct injuries caused by trauma. If you have experienced facial trauma, you will be in excellent hands at Coal Creek Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center. While Dr. Hayes was stationed in Germany, he treated many U.S. troops who had experienced severe facial trauma.
