Jaw surgeries are very complicated and require extraordinary precision and presence of mind. The size, position of face bones, growth of the jaws and teeth jaws and teeth determine the facial appearance. If the jaws are not proportionate or out of alignment, it may cause difficulties in speaking, biting, chewing or breathing, jaw joint pain and also affect the appearance. Such imbalances can be easily corrected surgically. Dr. Seema with her decade of experience and excellent surgical skills is well renowned to correct such deformities to give the patients the best cosmetic results.
Orthognathic surgery is on the bones of the jaws to change their position, size and alignment. Sometimes, bone may be added, taken away or reshaped. When the jaws are moved forwards or backwards, up or down, or rotated, the soft tissue in the chin, cheeks, lips and tip of the nose move accordingly. Therefore, once the jaws are correctly positioned, the architecture of the facial skeleton change and a balanced harmony of the facial features are achieved. This results in a change in the facial profile that is pleasing or in fact even more beautiful to look at. Suppose the upper jaw can be comparatively bigger than the lower jaw, which may lead to a “gummy” smile. Gummy smile can be corrected by Orthognathic surgery. The jaw size is decreased and the jaw is placed in a normal position drastically improving smile and appearance.
A detailed assessment 3D planning and analysis of the face & facial bones are done prior to executing the surgery. Many a times, there is a short period of orthodontic treatment done for subtle and fine detailing of the tooth positions after the orthognathic surgery.
The advantage of orthognathic surgery is teat immediate results that are visible. Also these surgeries are approached from inside the mouth so no visible external scars are present.
