Trauma and birth defects may all impact the jaw and benefit from this surgery. Not having a properly functioning jaw can inhibit your ability to engage in everyday, basic things like eating, speaking, or even breathing comfortably.
Common jaw issues that need to be addressed:
- Chronic jaw pain
- Difficulty biting and/or chewing food
- Protruding jaw
- Open bite
- Inability to properly swallow
- Sleep apnea
- TMJ disorder
The goal of orthognathic surgery is to correct any jaw issues that are present, returning it to its full function. But the results can actually end up enhancing the patient’s appearance.
