Jaw Pain? Orthognathic Surgery May Be Your Solution
As your Melbourne, Florida surgery associates we offer a wide range of oral and facial surgery treatments. Orthognathic surgery may be required to correct differences within a person’s jaw formation.
Orthognathic surgery may be required for functional, aesthetic, or pain related reasons. Maxillofacial deformities can be generally divided into three major categories including: dental dysplasias, skeletal dysplasias, and dentoskeletal dysplasias. Dental dysplasias involve abnormal dentition and can be corrected through orthodontic treatment. Skeletal dysplasias presents with good dentition but skeletal deformity, while dentoskeletal is a combination of abnormal skeletal formation and dentition. Patients with dentodysplasias and skeletal dysplasia require more complex treatment including orthognathic surgery.
