Oral and maxillofacial surgery
Depression and protrusion of jaw bone, various types of surgeries including cosmetic procedures
Maxillofacial surgery is done to modify the anomalies found in the jaw bone, teeth or face in general. Having these surgeries can improve chewing, talking or even breathing. Although, these procedures can cause major changes in the patient’s appearance, the main goal of doing them is to improve functional problems. Maxillofacial surgeries can treat problems related to chewing, swallowing, chronic jaw pain or headaches, tooth decay, open bite ( the upper and lower front teeth slant outwards and do not touch when the mouth is closed), irregular profile, face injuries, congenital anomalies, protrusion of lower or upper jaw, the disability to put upper and lower lip together, mouth breathing, sleep apnea (breathing problems while sleeping).
