Surgical Orthodontics in Michigan City, IN
Experienced Orthodontic Care You Can Count On
When your upper and lower jaws are misaligned, 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. In some cases, surgical orthodontics is necessary to correct the misalignment. If you think you or your child can benefit from surgical orthodontics in Michigan City, IN, our specialist offers high-quality orthodontic treatment and can also refer you to an oral surgeon.
Who Needs Surgical Orthodontic Treatment?
Surgical orthodontics is a treatment option for people who experience 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
In certain cases, orthodontic treatment can correct the above issues, making surgery unnecessary. 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.
