Corrective Jaw Surgery

The corrective jaw surgery aims to correct the position of the maxillary bone and jaw. That is, it is responsible for the correction of dental-craniomaxillofacial deformities in order to obtain a perfect balance between the patient’s facial features.

The types of corrective surgery are:

Mandibular advancement, when the lower teeth and chin have restrictions with respect to the rest of the face

  • Open bite happens while the upper and lower teeth do not collide in a symmetrical form when closing the mouth but leave a gap.
  • Mandibular asymmetry, when the chin and teeth have a deflect to one side
  • To find out which treatment is most appropriate, our experts perform a three-dimensional X-ray study. The images allow you to know which area experts will operate on and create a simulation of the process.

Why is it Performed?

The idea of this procedure is to accomplish good contact symmetry between these two bones to improve jaw function and facial aesthetics. This type of surgery is an indication for patients with a dental malocclusion that experts cannot treat exclusively with orthodontics.

What Does it Consist of?

The treatment consists in the execution, first of all, of an examination that allows acquiring clinical data such as radiographs, photographs, a realization of measurements and facial models. This examination allows the specialist to investigate the problems presented by the patient through computer programs and to make a specific diagnosis. Next, professionals establish the necessary treatment for dental, skeletal and facial correction.

By placing rubber on the teeth at the appropriate time, the jaws are close to each other.

After the jaws are close to each other with the help of elastic bands, the patient should not move their teeth or talk in order to fuse the bones. For those who have corrective jaw surgery, painkillers and antibiotics are available in case of infection. The jaw is not open for 10 to 14 days by giving the nutrition only in the form of liquid from the spaces between the teeth. During this time, the patient should pay attention to oral care.

In some patients, the fracture may heal incorrectly or incompletely, and in such cases, corrective jaw surgery might be of requirement.
