Our Ramapo orthognathic surgeon is highly skilled and experienced in performing this work, so you can rest assured that you are in the best of hands. Working closely with your dentist and your orthodontist, the goal of the surgery is to restore normal jaw function. Symptoms that you should be aware of that may mean a need for orthognathic surgery are having an open bite, protruding jaw, difficulties breathing, any problems related to chewing, biting, or swallowing, or speech difficulties. TMJ disorder is also associated with a need for this type of surgery. Any of these symptoms, either alone or in some combination with each other, do not necessarily mean you will need surgery, but they do mean you should call us to schedule an exam and consultation to diagnose the problem and recommend a course of treatment.

Your examination will be thorough and will include a physical checkup of your jaws and face along with x-rays. A medical history including heredity, relevant injuries, and possible environmental factors may also be discussed. These can offer valuable clues about the nature of your situation. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have. If our Ramapo orthognathic surgeon and you decide that surgery is the best action to take, a full slate of x-rays along with 3-D photos will be taken of the effected area. You will be able to view them on the computer so that it can be explained to you exactly what needs to be done.

The benefits of orthognathic surgery will be found in the results. A precise and normal bite, jaws that do not click, clench, or cause you pain when you open and close them. You will find a renewed ability to eat, speak, and possibly even to breathe with an ease that you may have taken for granted would never exist again. Our Ramapo orthognathic surgeon is pleased to offer this procedure and the relief that it can provide. Call us today to schedule an examination.

Suffern Corrective Jaw Surgery

One of the more common services we provide is orthognathic surgery or correction/reconstructive jaw surgery. If your face appears out of balance, if you’ve suffered a traumatic injury that has altered your facial shape, or if your jaws have grown irregularly, your primary dentist may refer you to our Suffern dental surgeons for orthognathic surgery. Though orthodontics can straight teeth and fix overbites or underbites, they cannot change the way your upper and lower jaws fit together. Because the way your facial bones develop affects your oral health, facial appearance and proportion, having corrective jaw surgery at Ramapo Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery can vastly improve how well you bite, chew and speak. If you have difficulty chewing or biting food, difficulty swallowing, chronic jaw pain, unbalance facial appearance, or excessive wearing of teeth, then come see our oral surgeons for a orthognathic surgery consultation. Jaw growth is a gradual process and in some instances the lower and upper jaws will grow at different rates, creating the aforementioned problems, as well as negatively impacting speech and chewing function.

Following a consultation with our trusted oral surgeons, if you are a candidate for corrective jaw surgery, our doctors will work closely with your primary dentist and orthodontist during your treatment.
