What You Need to Know about Surgical Orthodontics
There are a variety of issues that might require surgery, such as jaw bone abnormalities or bite problems that can’t be repaired with orthodontic appliances. In most cases, surgical orthodontic procedures are done in a hospital setting, after which the patient is sent home to recover. In some instances, the patient may need to wear braces for a brief period of time after the procedure is completed.
The good news is that surgery usually resolves the problem and alleviates any symptoms that the patient may have been experiencing. Those symptoms can often be very difficult to live with – like the pain involved with a misaligned jaw, for example.
If you are experiencing discomfort, pain, or difficulty eating or chewing your food, talk to Dr. Vo about your problem. She will be able to diagnose the condition and recommend the most appropriate and effective treatment for you. Whether the recommendation is an orthodontic appliance or surgery, the end result can greatly improve the quality of your life!
