Dr. Tamimi and his team at Royal Oral Maxillofacial & Surgery conduct Corrective jaw, or orthognathic, surgery is performed to correct a wide range of minor and major skeletal and dental irregularities, including the misalignment of jaws and teeth. Surgery can improve chewing, speaking and breathing. While the patient's appearance may be dramatically enhanced as a result of their surgery, orthognathic surgery is performed to correct functional problems.
Jaw Surgery can have a dramatic effect on many aspects of life.
Following are some of the conditions that may indicate the need for corrective jaw surgery:
Your dentist, orthodontist and OMS will work together to determine whether you are a candidate for corrective jaw, or orthognathic, surgery. The OMS determines which corrective jaw surgical procedure is appropriate and performs the actual surgery. It is important to understand that your treatment, which will probably include orthodontics before and after surgery, may take several years to complete. Your OMS and orthodontist understand that this is a long-term commitment for you and your family, and will try to realistically estimate the time required for your treatment.
Dr. Tamimi is compassion with those seeking jaw correction surgery and completely understands your position. Dont hesitate to contact our office and set up a consultation appointment.
