Functional > Jaw Surgery
The alignment and function of the jaw are integral not just to our appearance but more critically, to our oral health and the overall quality of life. Jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, is a specialized procedure designed to rectify irregularities between the upper and lower jaw, facilitating better alignment and function.
Who Qualifies for Jaw Surgery?
Candidates for jaw surgery include:
- Individuals experiencing difficulty in chewing, biting, or swallowing.
- Those suffering from chronic jaw or TMJ pain.
- Individuals with facial asymmetry, especially around the cheeks, jaws, or chin.
- Patients who have a receding or protruding jaw.
- Individuals who've undergone orthodontic treatment but still have bite discrepancies.
- Patients with breathing issues due to jaw positioning.
At CMF Surgeons, we emphasize the merger of function with form. Jaw surgery isn't merely about aesthetics but largely pivots on restoring proper function, alleviating discomfort, and preventing long-term oral health issues. The procedure involves a strategic repositioning of the jaws to enhance their alignment and function, resulting in improved bite, speech, and even respiratory functions for some individuals.
Our commitment to patient care is grounded in safety, education, patience, and understanding. By combining state-of-the-art techniques with a holistic patient-centric approach, we aim to provide transformative outcomes that significantly improve the quality of life. Embarking on a journey toward functional harmony requires trust, and CMF Surgeons is dedicated to being your trusted partner every step of the way.
