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.
