When your jaw fail to align properly, orthognathic surgery at Ramapo Oral Surgery in Suffern is required. This procedure is often done in conjunction with orthodontics. After braces have straightened the teeth, jaw surgery with your Goshen Oral Surgeons then corrects the misaligned jaw. We promise to work closely with your orthodontist to achieve a result that includes an enhanced facial appearance and a guided, functional bite.
Before oral surgery options are considered, a comprehensive dental examination, including x-rays is necessary. With this information, Drs. Caponigro, Pavone, and Hendi can then formulate a personal treatment plan for you, and can show you exactly how your surgery will be approached. We can illustrate how your bite and overall appearance will be improved. Our goal is to help you understand the surgical process and the benefits of orthognathic surgery. At Ramapo Oral you’ll have the added benefit of having our Monroe oral surgeons working together as a team on all orthognathic surgery cases. Together, they can provide the best possible surgical experience and an excellent result for you.
Jaw growth occurs gradually and in some cases, the upper and lower jaws grow at different rates, which can result in a variety of problems that may affect chewing, speech, long-term oral health, and appearance. You may want to schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons at Ramapo Oral Surgery and be evaluated for orthognathic surgery if you’re experiencing any of the following issues: Difficulty chewing, biting or swallowing, speech problems, breathing problems, protruding jaw, or chronic jaw pain.
