Oral Surgery Provided in Comfortable and Familiar Surroundings
Corrective Jaw Surgery
This type of surgery is also known as orthognathic surgery and may be required if you have any of the following issues:
- Problems caused by minor or major trauma
- Excessive wear caused by tooth clenching and grinding (bruxism)
- A misaligned jaw which is causing problems with facial appearance
- An incorrect bite (malocclusion)
- Difficulty in comfortably opening and closing your mouth and in chewing food
Some of these oral surgeries can be carried out using local anesthetic but sometimes conscious sedation can be useful. Additional sedation can be provided if you feel anxious or nervous about undergoing surgery and every patient is carefully screened to make sure sedation is a suitable and safe option.
A small surgical procedure is required to insert a dental implant post into the jawbone. This surgery is carried out by an oral surgeon who is able to pinpoint the best position for the implant, providing excellent aesthetic and functional results. Eventually the titanium implant post will fuse with the surrounding bone, becoming stable enough to support a crown, bridge or denture.
