Who Should Get Orthognathic Surgery?

Posted on . Filed under: Fort Lauderdale Oral Facial Surgery, Orthognathic Surgery

By and large, jaw growth gradually occurs but the rate at which it grows varies from one individual to another. For some individuals, jaw growth may not turn out as what it should be. As a result, they may find themselves having difficulties with speech, chewing, appearance, and problems with their oral health in the long-term.

If you’re experiencing the following signs and symptoms, you may be a candidate for orthognathic surgery:

  • Difficulties in biting, chewing, and swallowing
  • Protruding jaw
  • Chronic jaw pain
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Excessive tooth wear
  • Speech problems
  • Unbalanced facial appearance
