Our team of professionals are dedicated to addressing both functional and aesthetic concerns, ensuring proper alignment of your jaw and teeth, and correcting any dental abnormalities that extend beyond just the alignment of your teeth.
We are here to guide you throughout this transformative journey. During your consultation, we will discuss the remarkable benefits and potential outcomes of corrective jaw surgery, addressing any questions or concerns you may have. Rest assured, your comfort and satisfaction are our utmost priorities throughout the entire process!
For patients with abnormal jaw growth, jaw surgery can foster significant transformations, boosting not only function, but also confidence. By leveraging advanced surgical techniques and a patient-centred approach, we are committed to delivering the highest quality results tailored to your unique needs.
Our team of experts will assess your orthodontic needs thoroughly and determine if jaw surgery is necessary. While heredity does play a role in skeletal development, various factors can contribute to jaw alignment problems.
During adolescence, asymmetrical skeletal issues often become apparent, such as an uneven growth of the lower jaw, leading to an asymmetrical bite and potential tooth wear. In addition to hereditary factors, jaw misalignment can be caused by birth defects, injuries, or other conditions.
We understand the importance of thorough preparation before undergoing jaw surgery. Orthodontic treatment plays a pivotal role in this process, both before and after the surgery, to ensure the well-aligned bite that you’re after.
Prior to the surgery, our orthodontists will carefully assess your situation and make necessary adjustments to the position of your teeth in anticipation of the new jaw alignment. During this phase, you may experience temporary changes in your bite as part of the pre-surgical orthodontic treatment. Not to worry – These adjustments are completely anticipated, and integral to achieving the smile you’ve always dreamt of. Once the surgery is all wrapped up, your teeth will fit together seamlessly!
Our team of professionals are dedicated to providing expert orthodontic care and guiding you through the entire process, prioritising your comfort and confidence as you prepare for your jaw surgery.
Prepare to witness a transformative change! Jaw surgery involves various procedures tailored to your specific needs. Some of which include bone addition, removal, grafting, or reshaping. To maintain the new jaw positions, surgical plates, screws, wires, and rubber bands are commonly utilised in conjunction with braces until the bones have fully healed.
What to Expect
The duration and complexity of the recovery process will depend on your individual circumstances and the extent of your jaw surgery. Rest assured, our team will provide you with detailed information and guidance during your initial consultation, as well as a tailored recovery plan!
