Have you ever stopped to think about just how important your jaw is? It’s such a complex system with a ton of moving parts. Your jaw bone doesn’t just move up and down for no reason; it’s an intricate system of bones working in conjunction with other bones to ensure that everything is working properly. Unfortunately, there are patients out there who have jaws that don’t operate properly and can leave them reeling in pain. This pain could be the result of years of dealing with a misaligned jaw.

Corrective Jaw Surgery 101
Sometimes, the upper and lower jaws of the teeth can become misaligned. Hey, it happens. Not everyone is perfect. Restoring its function is what we’re worried about most, because if it isn’t functioning properly then no other problems can be corrected until the functionality is restored. When corrective jaw surgery is completed, the usual result is a major enhancement in your appearance. Simple tasks like speaking, chewing, breathing and more can be made easy again. Most people often forget how important the jaw is in your everyday habits.
There are several reasons for why patients choose to have corrective jaw surgery:
- Headaches stemming from chronic jaw pain
- An open bite
- Facial injury
- Defect at birth
- Chewing/biting difficulties
- Swallowing difficulties
- Sleep apnea
- Protruding jaw
- Receding chin
These aren’t all of them, but most. The only way to know for sure is by seeing Dr. Koo or Dr. Weil. They’ll know whether or not the procedure is needed. If it is, they’ll sit with you to discuss all of your options before undergoing treatment. The days of living in pain are over once you come to our office.
