If your teeth don’t fit together well or if you have a “gummy” smile or an under- or overbite, you may have jaw problems. Difficulty talking, chewing, or swallowing, as well as snoring, mouth breathing, neck and jaw pain, and sleep apnea, are all symptoms of abnormalities of the jaws and teeth. Some people are fortunate enough to have these medical concerns addressed in their teenage years, but others have to postpone treatment, suffering from the problems that result from a poor bite.
Corrective jaw surgery can eliminate the discomfort caused by these abnormalities, and when combined with an orthodontic treatment plan, it can change the appearance of your face and jaw.
Brandon Linn Orthodontics in Highlands Ranch, Colorado (CO), will talk you through the purpose and benefits of corrective jaw surgery. With today’s orthodontic technology, there are many treatments available to correct your bite, eliminate jaw pain, improve your dental health, and “beautify” your smile. You’ll likely find that treatment and recovery times are shorter than you expected and that you can get back to your life – healthier and more confident – sooner.
The procedure is performed in a hospital by an oral surgeon and can take several hours. You’ll likely be able to return to school or work in a couple of weeks, with complete healing in an additional 4-8 weeks. Your braces will likely be removed in the 6-12 months following jaw surgery, and then you’ll wear a retainer. This is just general information; your case and treatment plan is unique to you.
Dr. Linn, our 5-star-rated orthodontist in Highlands Ranch, uses state-of-the-art technology to plan your best course of treatment. You’ll work together to make sure that surgery is the right choice for you, and you’ll discuss how to minimize your treatment time and recovery. It’s possible that orthodontic care may be a better, more effective course of treatment, eliminating the need for surgery. After an initial assessment, Dr. Linn, our top-rated Highlands Ranch, CO orthodontist will review all of your options with you and help you make a decision about the best course of action to improve your smile and well-being.
Like any major medical procedure, there are certain risks associated with corrective jaw surgery. Your Highlands Ranch orthodontist will walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Your health and comfort are always our first priority. While this kind of treatment is a commitment, your beautiful, healthy smile will last a lifetime.
