Maxillary + Mandibular Osteotomy Cases

Jaw Orthognathic Surgery in Dubai

A misplaced or disorganized jaw makes an individual suffer from a lot of issues especially while chewing food, breathing, and even sleeping. The irregularities in the jaw also disturb facial presentation. Several factors are responsible for a misaligned jaw that include jaw injury, birth abnormality, growing of upper and lower jaws at a different pace, and so on. In such cases, it is essential to align the jaw and teeth for maximum dental health and enhance the ability of the oral cavity to work efficiently.

What is Orthognathic Surgery?

Sometimes, people have a misaligned lower jaw (mandible) or upper jaw (maxilla), and these skeletal disharmonies affect the jawbone and facial balances. Jaw orthognathic surgery is the solution that straightens the jaws and makes them symmetrical to the face. A broad range of mild to severe facial disharmonies is corrected with this surgery. It repositions jawbones in such a way that the teeth and jaw meet in an appropriate position, which eventually improves the function and bite issue. Orthognathic surgery can also enhance facial appearance by rectifying facial asymmetry, for example, a weak or a huge jawline.

Usually, when the problem of a bad bite (malocclusion) is not cured with orthodontic treatment only, the patient may require undergoing orthognathic surgery. It not only realigns the jaws but also helps in re-establishing the dental occlusion.

Who Performs an Orthognathic Surgery?

At MedDental, our highly experienced Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons carry out orthognathic surgeries to resolve jaw issues and to bring the teeth and jaw in the perfect position. Our consultant's specialist surgeons will relocate the entire jaw or upper/lower and reposition the teeth through an orthognathic surgery preceded and followed by an orthodontic treatment before and after the surgery. Our expert dental team will produce an aligned, beautiful, healthful, and operating smile.

The Procedure

The treatment initiates when you consult our Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon who will perform a detailed examination of your dental condition along with taking digital images. In many cases, a specialist orthodontist will also work in collaboration if any orthodontic treatment is needed.

Since it is an invasive procedure, the surgery will take place after the patient is under the effect of general anesthesia. The severity and complexity of the patient’s problem will determine the duration of the surgery.

A post-care surgery plan will be provided to the patients, which includes the instructions regarding dental hygiene practices, diets to follow, and prescribed medications.

Benefits of Orthognathic Surgery

  • Minimize the Effects of Injury: Jaw surgery will treat the facial injury caused by an accident, and you can enjoy the features of a balanced face. 
  • Restore Facial Irregularities: The asymmetrical issues of the jaw and face can be treated, and the surgery will produce a more balanced and attractive look with a beautiful smile.
