Mesquite Orthognathic Surgery

At DFW Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, our skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeons carry out orthognathic surgery in Mesquite to correct various skeletal and dental irregularities. This corrective jaw surgery is essential when jaws don’t align properly or teeth don’t fit with each other. An orthodontist will straighten the teeth, and then our surgeons step in to adjust the misaligned jaw. This procedure not only enhances facial aesthetics but also makes sure that the teeth and jaws meet correctly and function properly.

Who Needs Orthognathic Surgery?

DFW Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in Mesquite offers orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery for those facing issues with an improper bite or misaligned jaws. The growth of the upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible) can sometimes be uneven, leading to problems that affect chewing, speaking, sleep apnea, and even long-term oral health and facial appearance and aesthetics. These challenges can result from injuries or birth defects that disrupt the normal alignment of the jaws. While braces are effective for correcting bite issues that involve only the positioning of teeth, orthognathic surgery is required to address skeletal deformities of maxillary and mandibular misalignment.

Difficulty in the following areas should be evaluated:

Symptoms might be present at birth, develop due to hereditary or environmental influences, or result from trauma to the face. Before any treatment can start, it’s essential to have a consultation with our oral and maxillofacial surgeons and an orthodontist for a thorough check-up, including X-rays. This pre-treatment consultation is your opportunity to ask our surgeons in Mesquite questions about the mandible and maxilla surgery. Once you’re fully informed about what your care involves, you and your dental team can make an informed decision together on how to proceed with your treatment.
