Corrective Jaw Surgery Can Transform Your Smile

When your smile sustains a serious injury, or issues occurring during the growth and development of your smile, you could have poor balance in your jaw. This could not only impact smile beauty, but leave you vulnerable to oral health complications. Your Great River Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in Clinton, IA, can help with corrective jaw surgery!

When You Require Orthognathic Surgery

Jaw surgery could be used to correct issues that occur due to growth of your jaw or with the eruption of the teeth, which can upset bite balance and stain your jaw. We could also repair injuries that occur, which could damage the jawbone and impact the function and health of your smile. Whether due to injury or the natural growth process, we can help restore proper balance to your smile. Not only do we focus on improving the function and health of your smile, but we take steps to ensure proper facial esthetics, so you enjoy better smile beauty than prior to treatment.

Preparing Your Smile for Treatment

First, we need to take a close look at your smile to understand the underlying factors behind your imbalance and injuries. With digital imaging technology, we can do so using a fraction of the radiation, and in a shorter time frame. No need to wait for the images to develop, they’re available instantly chairside, so we can also walk you through the diagnostic process too. Every smile is unique, and will require a personalized approach to surgery. Our team will also ensure your comfort, even if you have dental anxiety or special needs. In addition to a local anesthetic being administered to the area being treated, we can also discuss dental sedation options to help you enter a deep state of calm and relaxation, with little to no memory of the procedure afterward.

Corrective Jaw Surgery

Our surgery could be used to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention. We can treat facial trauma and damaged bone structure, and also move the jaw in or out, up or down, as needed to correct the jaw and any damage you’ve sustained. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up visits to ensure the area is healing as it should, and to help ensure you avoid complications and enjoy optimal results. If you have any questions about our approach to corrective jaw surgery, then contact our team today to learn more.
