Care from Jaw Surgery Experts
If you’re living with serious jaw problems, the debilitating consequences can diminish your day-to-day life. Eating and speaking is painful and difficult. You have jaw and joint pain, sore facial muscles, and headaches. An unbalanced facial appearance, protruding jaw, or recessed chin make it a struggle to feel confident and attractive.
The relieving news is that the solution to your chronic and sometimes complex functional and cosmetic issues can frequently be solved with orthognathic surgery or corrective jaw surgery in Hattiesburg, MS. If your jaw pain is keeping you from living a comfortable, functional, and confident life, it may be time to meet with an oral surgeon.
Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons, J. Brian Jackson, DMD, MD, and John Roberson, DMD have spent years of additional education and residency experience outside of dental school to specialize in procedures like orthognathic surgery. Having achieved the highest level of surgical training in the dental field, they are the only dental specialists qualified to offer this treatment.
Our oral surgeons at Midtown Oral & Facial Surgery have years of experience completing these surgeries using minimally invasive techniques and innovative technologies to ensure predictable and lasting results. With such extensive training and wide-reaching clinical experience, rarely do any of our patients have conditions that fall out of the scope of our expertise. You’ll be in skilled hands by seeking treatment with our trusted surgical team in Hattiesburg, MS.
Candidates for Corrective Jaw Surgery
What To Expect with Orthognathic Surgery
In many cases of corrective jaw surgery, the problems you’re experiencing are a result of jaws that are not properly aligned. This causes chronic jaw pain, TMJ problems, misaligned teeth, and other significant problems. Our jaw surgery aims to bring alignment back to your jaws and, thus, your life. This is accomplished by moving the lower jaw forward or backward. In some cases, repositioning the upper jaw is required as well.
This can generally be accomplished in a single surgery you can receive at Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg, MS, while under general anesthesia. Once the jaw(s) is aligned properly and balanced, your mouth can function comfortably and easily, with teeth that now come together properly. For many of our patients, corrective jaw surgery is life-changing, allowing them to finally enjoy life free from chronic jaw pain, TMJ problems, bite issues, and esthetic concerns!
