Surgical Solutions for Your Smile
If you or a loved one is dealing with any kind of discomfort in the jaw area, our team at DiMarzio Orthodontics can solve the problem and resolve your pain through surgical orthodontics.
All About Surgical Orthodontics
We use our mouths and teeth for everything from speaking to eating. The remaining teeth can suffer severe issues when one or multiple teeth are missing. These teeth may shift out of place, often leading to unnecessary wear and tear.
Misaligned teeth can harm your bite and the alignment of your jaw, in addition to the teeth wearing against each other. It also means the jaw can become strained and experience discomfort as it struggles to rest in unnatural positions.
Surgical orthodontics includes any corrective treatments that reposition and straighten the jaw and teeth. Through surgical orthodontics, Dr. DiMarzio and Dr. Marczak can correct your dental and skeletal irregularities.
There are several different treatments in this field of dentistry. Your treatment will depend on several factors, including the placement of your jaw and teeth and the severity of the problems you’re experiencing.
Who Needs Surgical Orthodontics?
How do you know if you or a loved one could benefit from surgical orthodontics? We’ll be able to help determine that when you visit our office, but ultimately it depends on the jaw development.
You or your child might qualify for surgical orthodontic treatment as a result of any of the following symptoms:
- Sleep apnea.
- Chronic mouth breathing.
- Protruding jaw.
- Receding lower jaw or chin.
- Congenital disabilities.
- Difficulty chewing, biting or swallowing food.
- Serious injury to jaw or face.
- Open bite.
- Jaw joint or jaw pain (stemming from TMJ disorders).
- Asymmetrical facial appearance.
These are a few common examples, but surgical orthodontics can treat many issues. For example, sometimes patients have upper and lower jaws that grow at different rates, which can lead to discrepancies in size and function. Surgical orthodontics can fix such issues by aligning the jaws properly.
Jaw treatment works particularly well with Invisalign clear aligners or traditional braces. The result will be an aligned bite and straight teeth.
Can Everyone Benefit from Surgical Orthodontics?
It’s important to note that, for many patients, surgery might not be the optimal choice. Thanks to advances in dental technology, patients who would typically have undergone this kind of treatment no longer have to. Instead, they can enjoy amazing results and improved dental health without invasive surgery.
Our team at DiMarzio Orthodontics is trained to treat patients of all ages, including those who could benefit from surgery to properly correct their smile and jaw. Everyone has different needs, and our team will customize treatment to meet yours.
What to Expect From Surgical Orthodontic Treatment
Surgical orthodontic treatment will start with a consultation and examination from Dr. DiMarzio or Dr. Marczak. We will map out your treatment thoroughly to see where and how surgical orthodontics will make a difference in your smile and jaw alignment.
Your treatment will result in a well-positioned jaw and solve any orthodontic issues or symptoms that you may have.
