Jaw Surgery


Treatment From Your Local Warminster Orthodontists

vbracesDental patients who experience jaw pain or difficulty when chewing, biting, swallowing, or even sleeping may be affected by certain abnormalities of the face and jaw. These abnormalities can make normal activities more challenging than they need to be. Your local Hatboro, Warminster, and Horsham orthodontists Dr. Nancy Casey and Dr. Anthony Albert can help identify the precise nature of the disorder affecting a patient. Treating these abnormalities helps patients experience less pain, enhanced quality of life, and greater satisfaction with their appearance.

Correcting The Issue

Corrective jaw surgery, also called orthognathic surgery, can improve numerous variations of the jaw and face. Treatment involves several steps, including:

  • Evaluation: An orthodontist specializing in orthognathic concerns will examine the patient to determine the precise nature of the abnormalities present. This evaluation will guide the selection of treatment options.
  • Imaging: State-of-the-art digital imaging is used to carefully map out the course of treatment. Patients can see what their treatment will involve.
  • Surgery: Titanium components and other advanced items are used during surgery to correct the affected area. These components provide exceptional stability so the patient can enjoy a lifetime of worry-free biting, swallowing, and chewing.

In some cases, jaw problems can be corrected with orthodontic aligners, including different types of braces. Patients with braces can depend on our office care team for exceptional treatment solutions, too.

The Benefits Of Jaw Surgery

In addition to restoring normal function to the jaw joint, orthognathic surgery and other alignment correcting solutions help relieve pain. Treatment can also give patients increased confidence and satisfaction with the way they look. Imaging and initial consultations give patients the perfect opportunity to discuss their concerns with an orthodontic specialist. This is the best way to receive answers to your personal questions.
