Jaw Surgery


The harmony between the appearance and function of your face significantly contributes to your overall well-being. A critical part of this harmony is the correct alignment of the jaws and teeth. When the jaws are misaligned, it can lead to functional problems, aesthetic issues, and an overall decrease in the quality of life. At the Maxillofacial Oral Surgery and Implant Center (MOSAIC), we offer advanced and personalized treatment options, including Orthognathic Surgery, to correct jaw irregularities and restore harmony to your face.

Orthognathic Surgery, more commonly known as jaw surgery, involves the surgical correction of the jaw's position. It aims to improve the function of the jaw and can significantly enhance the facial appearance of patients who have discrepancies in their jaw alignment.

Understanding Jaw Misalignment

Jaw misalignment can occur as a result of various factors such as congenital abnormalities, growth disorders, or trauma. It can lead to a host of issues like difficulty in chewing, speaking, and even breathing. It may also affect one's facial appearance and consequently, their self-esteem.

Orthognathic surgery can address these problems. However, it is important to note that jaw surgery is typically considered when non-surgical treatments cannot adequately rectify the problem.

The Orthognathic Surgery Process

The process starts with a comprehensive evaluation of your oral and maxillofacial region. At MOSAIC, Dr. Noble employs advanced diagnostic tools to evaluate the structure of your jaws, the position of your teeth, and the overall aesthetics of your face. He will also review your medical history and discuss your specific concerns and goals.

Orthognathic surgery involves the careful manipulation of the jawbones and may include adding, removing, or reshaping bone structures. In some cases, the surgery may be performed alongside other procedures such as rhinoplasty or genioplasty to optimize the aesthetic outcome.

The goal of orthognathic surgery is to realign the jaws and teeth to improve their function and create facial symmetry. It's a process that requires meticulous planning and skillful execution – and that's where the expertise of Dr. Noble comes in.


After the Surgery: Recovery and Results

After orthognathic surgery, patients will need a period of recovery during which they'll be guided by Dr. Noble and his team. The recovery period may include a temporary change in diet and a specific regimen of physical therapy exercises.

The results of orthognathic surgery can be life-changing. By restoring the proper function of the jaws and enhancing facial aesthetics, it can significantly improve a patient's quality of life.
