Often, your first visit to a new doctor can be a frightening and frustrating experience. However, at Ramapo Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery, we strive you provide you with a comfortable and easy experience. Rather than having you fill out new paperwork, we work with your primary dentist to transfer records and any x-rays you’ve already taken. Our staff is composed of highly-experience, certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons with a great reputation for amazing skill and patient satisfaction among the families in Suffern and Ramapo.
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. Learn more about orthognathic surgery by visiting Ramapo Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery today!
