Experience the Highest Level of Care From Our 5-Star-Rated Provider
When the upper and lower jaws don’t grow at the same time, it can cause a discrepancy in size and function, and lead to abnormalities that affect eating, chewing, speaking, sleeping, breathing, and other routine activities. It can also affect the appearance of your facial profile. If you think you or your child can benefit from surgical orthodontics in La Porte, IN, our specialist offers orthodontic treatment and can refer you to an oral surgeon, if needed.
Symptoms That You May Need Surgical Orthodontic Treatment
Surgical orthodontics is a treatment option for numerous uncomfortable or even painful symptoms, including:
- Chronic headaches
- Chronic jaw pain or jaw joint pain
- Chronic mouth breathing or dry mouth
- TMJ pain / TMD pain
- Breathing problems while asleep (sleep apnea)
- Difficulty chewing, biting, or swallowing
- Difficulty closing lips completely
- Excessive wearing of the teeth
- Open bite (i.e., space left between your upper & lower teeth when your mouth is closed)
- An uneven facial appearance from the front or side
- Receding chin or protruding jaw
- Facial injury or birth defects
Surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. Orthodontic treatment may also be used in conjunction with corrective jaw surgery to align the teeth appropriately. Although jaw surgery can dramatically improve a patient’s appearance, the goal is to correct functional problems.
Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of corrective jaw surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes the treatment time and the recovery period while increasing the overall efficiency of your surgery.
Fryar Orthodontics uses state-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws to provide:
