Jaw Surgery - Key Largo, FL

Straighten the Foundation of Your Smile

Jaw Surgery May Be the Way

You may need corrective jaw surgery, also called orthognathic surgery, for a variety of reasons. Your upper and lower teeth might be misaligned, and the teeth don’t come together correctly (malocclusion), causing difficulty speaking, biting, chewing, and swallowing food. Malocclusion can also cause sleep apnea, which has health implications far more serious than snoring. Many patients with temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD, who suffer from chronic jaw pain, severely worn teeth, and migraines may also benefit from jaw surgery.

Your jaws may need treatment due to malocclusion, severe facial trauma or a birth defect. Whatever the case, our team of specialists here at Overseas Dental in Key Largo, FL will handle your care with the utmost expertise and exceptional compassion, helping restore the function and appearance of your face, and giving you the confidence to live without fear or embarrassment. Restoring your peace of mind though jaw surgery is as important to us as helping you reclaim your health.

The Benefits of Jaw Surgery

Jaw surgery can rectify your jaw misalignment when orthodontic treatment or an occlusal adjustment isn’t sufficient. It begins with extensive imaging to confirm that you’re a candidate. Our oral surgeon has performed orthognathic surgery, or jaw surgery, many times with consistent success in restoring top, bottom, or both jaws for our patients. He works together with our orthodontist and other in-house dental professionals at our Key Largo, FL office to ensure your orthognathic surgery will result in both optimal facial aesthetics and full, natural jaw movement.
