Orthognathic (Corrective Jaw) Surgery

Orthognathic Surgery in Dallas

Jaw Reconstruction to Reposition Misaligned Jaws in Dallas and the Park Cities Area

You may need orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery if your jaws don’t meet correctly, or are misaligned, such as if your teeth don’t seem to fit within the jaws. While orthodontics can straighten crooked teeth, corrective jaw surgery is used to straighten crooked jaws and is performed by an oral-maxillofacial surgeon. The process has multiple benefits, including the improvement of facial aesthetics and ensuring that your teeth meet correctly and function as they should. You may benefit from jaw reconstruction if you have difficulty speaking, chewing, sleeping, or swallowing, and if you notice cosmetic issues like a protruding jaw or facial asymmetry. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Jaw Reconstruction? 

Before treatment begins, you’ll need a consultation for a complete examination with X-rays with our board-certified oral-maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Chris Johnson. During the pre-treatment consultation, make sure to ask any questions you have regarding jaw reconstruction so you are fully informed about all aspects of your care. If you are a good candidate for the surgery, our team will work closely with your dentist and/or orthodontist for optimal treatment results. 

Conditions that can be treated with corrective orthognathic surgery include:

  • An unbalanced appearance from the front or side
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Chronic jaw pain and headache
  • Malocclusion from under-bites or overbites
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • Open bite, protruding jaw, or receding chin
  • Congenital defects
