Finding out you need jaw surgery can seem worrisome. However, what many don’t know is that this can actually be a positive and life-changing procedure.
This surgery is recommended for a variety of conditions, some of which include crooked jaws, misaligned bites, facial trauma, birth defects and more.
You don’t have to suffer just because that’s how it’s always been. With our team, you can get corrective surgery that will help your jaw to move and work the way it’s supposed to.
Jaw surgery not only helps restore a healthy smile, it changes lives.
What Is Jaw Surgery?
Also known as orthognathic surgery, this procedure is used to straighten and align your mouth. When your jaw is in the wrong position, your teeth don’t line up correctly.
As a result, they begin to grind against each other in areas where they shouldn’t even touch. Eventually, your teeth will wear down and you will likely see more dental issues, such as cavities. Misaligned jaws not only affect your teeth, but they can also cause problems eating and speaking.
Surgery helps resolve all these concerns. In fact, when combined with excellent orthodontic care, there’s no reason your jaw should cause you any pain or problems.
Surgery is also an option for TMJ disorder, sleep apnea, chronic pain and cosmetics issues. No matter the reason you need it, our team here at South Jordan Oral & Facial Surgery has the expertise to handle it all. With our years of experience performing successful surgeries, you can be confident you are receiving some of the best care in Utah.
The Jaw Surgery Procedure and the Recovery
We know that the prospect of surgery can be scary. However, jaw surgery is relatively pain-free. During most of the time, you’ll be under anesthesia. When it’s over, you’ll notice a little swelling and discomfort for the rest of the day, and potentially into the day after. After a few days though, you’ll be back to normal!
When you work with our team, you can be confident in your successful outcome because we work with your other health care professionals. Before and after the treatment, we communicate consistently with your orthodontist and other dental caregivers so we are all on the same page.
We are dedicated to making sure you have the best recovery possible.
