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.
