Do you meet the conditions indicating you might need corrective jaw surgery? | (386) 837-1236

Following are some of the conditions that may indicate the need for corrective jaw surgery:

-Difficulty chewing or biting food

-Difficulty swallowing

-Chronic jaw or jaw joint (TMJ) pain and headache

-Excessive wear of the teeth

-Open bite (space between the upper and lower teeth when the mouth is closed)

-Unbalanced facial appearance from the front, or side

-Facial injury

-Birth defects

-Receding lower jaw and chin

-Protruding jaw

-Inability to make the lips meet without straining

-Chronic mouth breathing

-Sleep apnea (breathing problems when sleeping, including snoring)


Your dentist and Dr. Turbyfill will work together to determine whether you are a candidate for orthognathic surgery. He determines which corrective jaw surgical procedure is appropriate and performs the actual surgery. It is important to understand that your treatment, which will probably include orthodontics before and after surgery, may take several years to complete. Dr. Turbyfill and your dentist understand that this is a long-term commitment for you and your family, and will try to realistically estimate the time required for your treatment.
