What Can Corrective Jaw Surgery Resolve?


orrective jaw surgery can treat many different issues, ranging from breathing complications to chronic headaches. Here are some of the most common reasons patients opt for surgery.

  • Breathing disorders (sleep apnea)
  • Chronic jaw pain
  • Difficulty biting, chewing, or swallowing

Jaw Surgery vs. Braces

Braces treat bite problems related to teeth, but they do not address issues with jaw size or position. Depending on your case, surgery might be necessary – or even a combination of braces and surgery. It’s best to come in for a consultation to get a professional opinion.
