If you experience recurring jaw pain, have trouble eating, or your bite does not come together properly, the reason may be due to an improper jaw position. Jaw disfunction is more than just a functional concern, many patients even experience an imbalanced facial appearance which gradually wears away at the jawbone and muscle. Our oral surgeons at Western Pennsylvania Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery offer patients experiencing jaw concerns effective and precise jaw surgery. Jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, usually involves repairing issues in the jawbones themselves along with the realignment of the teeth for a proper fit. As jaw surgery is a more invasive procedure, we will typically try to realign your jaw through other methods, like ClearCorrect orthodontics or bone grafting first, but if these prove to be ineffective, we won’t have you living with discomfort any longer.
With our oral and maxillofacial surgeons having a hospital-based education along with additional years of schooling to better understand the jaw, teeth and bones, we are your leading source for effective jaw surgery. We see patients for corrective jaw surgery as a result of facial trauma, natural birth defects or improper bone growth. With over 13 years offering advanced care to patients in the Washington, PA and surrounding areas, we strive to restore your quality of life and aesthetics with corrective jaw surgery.
When performing jaw surgery, we often work closely with your general dentist to create a treatment plan that is unique to you. We never perform a one-size-fits-all surgery or compromise on results, thus we work to make sure your jaw is corrected to the ideal functional and aesthetic results. Thanks to our cone beam CT imaging, we are able to capture detailed images of your jaw, bones, nerves and location of tooth roots. This allows us to better plan your treatment and ensures nothing is missed. On the day of surgery, we offer a variety of anesthesia options including IV sedation to suit your needs so you won’t need to feel anxious or worry about discomfort. And once fully healed, your jaw will be able to function properly without stress or pain.
