How Orthognathic Surgery Can Help You
Our providers at Dallas Surgical Arts only recommend jaw surgery when other less-invasive options have not yielded adequate results. We always perform a thorough review of your medical history and physical health before determining whether or not you are an ideal candidate for this procedure.
Common symptoms of a misaligned jaw and related concerns include:
- Difficulty biting, chewing, swallowing, or closing your mouth
- Speech or breathing issues
- Sleep apnea
- Teeth grinding (bruxism)
- Persistent dry mouth
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
- Uneven and excessive tooth wear
- Protruding jaw or other facial features imbalance
Whether your jaw issues are due to congenital reasons, trauma, or growth issues, orthognathic surgery can help you bite, chew, speak, and breathe adequately. It provides pain relief from sore jaw muscles, and it can significantly improve your speech if applicable. Proper jaw alignment enhances your facial features for a more defined and symmetrical look.
Procedure and Recovery
As with all of our procedures, using cutting-edge technology, techniques, and surgical equipment our providers perform orthognathic surgery with great accuracy to create lasting results. We conduct orthognathic surgery under general anesthesia either at our surgical center or at a hospital.
Most patients can go home a few hours after the surgery, although we may recommend you stay at the hospital for one or two days for additional observation and medical care.
The initial recovery stage can take up to six weeks, and you can expect to continue healing for nine to twelve months after the surgery. Your orthodontist and surgeon may recommend that you wear braces or other oral appliances for a few months to ensure maximum improvement. We will also schedule regular checkups during your healing phase to monitor your progress.
