Orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, is necessary when a patient’s upper and lower jaws don’t align correctly and/or the person’s teeth don’t meet with the jaws. Orthodontics can correct bite problems when only teeth are involved, but alone, cannot fix jaw problems in certain cases. If the jaws are not aligned properly, often a result of the upper and lower jaws growing at different rates, orthognathic surgery provided by our North Bergen oral surgeons may be necessary. If this jaw problem is not remedied, the patient may experience several problems, which can greatly affect chewing, speech, long-term oral health, and appearance.

A consultation and a thorough clinical and radiographic evaluation will be performed by our North Bergen oral surgeons at Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery to determine if someone is a candidate for orthognathic surgery. If you have one or more of the following symptoms: difficulty chewing, biting or swallowing, speech problems, chronic jaw of TMJ pain, open bite, protruding jaw or breathing problems, we highly recommend that you make an appointment as soon as possible in order to confirm the diagnosis. In order to correct jaw problems, the teeth would be straightened with orthodontics and the misaligned jaws would be repositioned with corrective jaw surgery. Orthognathic surgery can greatly improve the quality of one’s life by correcting the misaligned jaws. The surgery will ensure that the teeth meet and function properly. It will also improve one’s facial appearance which can greatly improve your confidence.

When it comes to something as serious as this condition, you cannot afford to go to anyone other than the best. You need to see a specialist in the field. If you have these symptoms, it is very important that you be evaluated and treated as soon as possible by experts in the field. Our professional North Bergen oral surgeons at Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery have the expertise and experience to help you. Our dental team, from our caring staff to our expert oral surgeons, truly care about our patients and are passionate about helping them to improve their quality of life. Our oral surgeons will take the time to explain the process to you and will answer any questions you may have. They will address any concern you may have as well.

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.
