When the teeth and jaws are misaligned, a condition called malocclusion, which cannot be corrected with orthodontics alone, an orthodontist may recommend consulting a surgeon. The jaw operation, called orthognathic surgery, can move the jaws into a more favorable position to remove the disparities between the upper and lower jaws. Once the jaws have been positioned correctly, an orthodontist can align the teeth in their optimal position.
You may be directed to jaw surgery before or during orthodontic treatment, or after the braces are removed. Your surgeon will consider the pros and cons of a surgical and non-surgical approach so that you can make the right decision for you.
Orthognathic surgery helps straighten or realign the upper and lower jaws, correcting skeletal deformities such as retracted or protruding jaws, an open bite or a protruding lower jaw. Depending on the specific reason for the surgery, such as an open bite or a protruding lower jaw, the jaw can be lengthened or shortened, moved forward or backward, or up or down, resulting in a more aligned bite and improves the appearance of the face.
While most jaw surgeries are performed for both corrective and functional reasons, it is important to choose a surgeon who is experienced in facial aesthetics, since adjusting the jaw has a significant impact on your appearance.
You and your doctor will discuss in detail your concerns, the expected results, the pros and cons of the surgery, and how the procedure will be performed. In most cases, your surgeon will work with an orthodontist and other dental specialists to carefully plan surgery and treatment after surgery, using imagery and models of your jaw and teeth. Finally, a presentation will be examined showing the typical results as well as a schematic representation of the surgical procedure.
It is important to understand that this type of surgery is usually a long-term commitment. Dental and / or orthodontic care will probably have to be done before and after surgery, at several stages:
On the day of the procedure, you will receive an intravenous anesthesia. Your doctor will separate and reposition the jaw in the correct alignment. In most cases, all of the incisions are made inside the mouth, thereby removing external scars. Tiny screws or metal plates can be used to keep the bone in the proper position and your jaw can be closed during the initial healing process. In some cases, additional bones can be added, or bones can be reshaped or removed for a better fit. In many cases, a procedure is also performed on the chin at the same time to balance the new bite.
Factors that may influence costs include the severity of the jaw misalignment and the type of surgery required. Your location, the hospital that treats you, and the complications that arise during treatment can all make a difference.
