Experts at Corrective Jaw Surgery Serving Murrieta
In addition to braces, our orthodontist can also assist patients who require orthognathic surgery. This is a type of corrective jaw surgery that fixes any abnormalities within the jaw bone or teeth. This treatment is necessary in order to correct speech and eating problems. Problems in the jaw can also affect the quality of sleep you are able to get. The office of Dr. Mitchell Orthodontics in Murrieta utilizes digital imaging to help with the planning process, so the actual surgery goes as smoothly as possible.
Benefits of Orthognathic Procedures
Whether issues with the jaw have been present since birth or if they are the result of trauma, numerous patients can benefit from undergoing this type of surgery. Certain issues with the jaw can create a protruding or receding line. Some people may be suffering from a temporomandibular joint disorder that causes excessive pain and chewing problems. Sleep apnea is another common reason to undergo the surgery because if you have that disorder, it is difficult to get a good night’s rest. Ultimately, this surgery may be needed in order to improve a patient’s quality of life; so if you or a loved one has teeth or jaw issues, ask about the possibility of receiving this treatment.
