Bad bites and crooked teeth are not just aesthetically less pleasing, it is also harder to maintain good oral hygiene. For instance, some might have issues with getting food stuck in their teeth. Others might have difficulty chewing comfortably, enunciating or articulating. Your tooth enamel might be more worn down due to an uneven bite and some may suffer from chronic headaches and temporomandibular joint disorder.
During your consultation with our dental specialists at Specialist Dental Group, they will shed light on the relevance of correcting jaw issues and preserving your overall dental health. Read on to learn more about how jaw surgery can benefit your health.
Jaw surgery improves one’s facial appearance, chewing function and prevents jaw joint dysfunction. It helps correct the alignment of a person’s jaws and teeth when these are not positioned correctly or when there is a discrepancy in the jaw size. As the entire procedure is performed inside the mouth, one does not have to worry about visible scars being seen on the face.
