The jaw is one of the most complex joints in the body, and when a single component of the jaw isn’t working properly, patients may develop symptoms like discomfort or locking or popping of the jaw. The patient may also be dissatisfied with the jaw’s effects on the smile’s appearance.
Orthognathic surgery can help to correct jaw defects in such cases. This category of intervention includes multiple procedures targeting the different components of the jaw. Orthognathic surgery ranges in terms of complexity, as well.
If you have experienced jaw issues, we welcome you to schedule an evaluation to see if orthognathic surgery may help. Call our office to schedule an appointment.
