A misaligned bite can cause excessive tooth wear and jaw pain over time, and it may not be correctable through regular orthodontic treatment. Surgery can correct alignment, and subsequent treatment can correct the rest.
Jaw misalignment can restrict the airway, making it more difficult to breathe, particularly while sleeping. Correcting misalignment can improve airflow and reduce breathing issues.
Some aesthetic issues, such as excessive gums or extreme gaps, cannot be repaired by treatment alone. Orthodontic surgery can make the major repairs, while treatment can correct the rest. The result is a smile you can be proud to show anytime!
A misaligned jaw can cause teeth to rub against each other while chewing. This abnormal friction can lead to excessive tooth wear, which can lead to accelerated decay or even tooth fracture or loss. Alignment correction through surgery can alleviate this issue.
