Jaw Surgery Reviews
When a jaw does not develop correctly, it can cause misalignment in the form of an underbite or an overbite. Misaligned jaws can cause a host of oral health issues in patients, including the inability to eat, speak, and even breathe properly. Treatment for jaw misalignment depends on the severity of your condition; if your jaw is only mildly misaligned, it may be able to be corrected through orthodontia. When your jaw misalignment is severe, however, you will most likely be referred to an oral surgeon for orthognathic, or corrective jaw, surgery. In corrective jaw surgery, our doctor will reposition your jaw to restore function and aesthetics to your mouth and face.
The process of corrective jaw surgery, in total, can take up to 18-24 months, but once the process is over, you will be able to enjoy both the functional and aesthetic benefits. Past patients who have undergone corrective jaw surgery at our office have reported improvement in their ability to eat, speak, and breathe, and have even admitted that they are much more confident in their new appearance. If you are interested in hearing from some of these patients, we have provided their video testimonials below, which you can watch to learn more about their treatment and their positive experience at Collins Oral & Facial Surgery.
