At the Aesthetical Dental Clinic, specialists provide surgical correction of the jaw or orthognathic surgery. They help both in the case of congenital and acquired pathologies of any complexity.
Its task is to restore the natural symmetry and harmony of the face, normalize the bite, and improve the quality of life. Maxillofacial surgery includes many areas related to treating face and neck tissues. One of these areas is orthognathic treatment or surgical orthodontics.
The process of incorrect formation of the position of the jaws and bite of the teeth falls mainly on 10-13 years. A number of reasons may contribute to this.
When the jaws deviate from their natural position, the position of the soft tissues is also affected. Cheeks, lips, nose, chin, cheekbones, and profile contour are subject to changes, which are decisive in forming a person’s appearance and facial expression.
Generally speaking, orthognathic surgery is indicated for facial asymmetry, deformities of the dentition, underdevelopment or overdevelopment of the jaws, and previously ineffective orthodontic treatment.
In the case of improper closing of the teeth as a result of the deformed position of the jaw, braces have no particular effect. This means that only by returning the bones to their normal position can we talk about effective treatment. It is orthognathic surgery in such cases that is the most effective measure.
Orthognathy is usually used for patients over 18 years of age. It is during this period that the period of bone growth is already ending. The procedure can last 1 to 6 hours, depending on the complexity of the violation.
Orthognathic surgery in Aesthetical Dental is based on techniques and procedures that make orthognathic surgery as gentle as possible. All manipulations to correct the malocclusion of an adult and defects of the facial bones are performed with the minimum required number of surgical actions and a minimum incision.
At the planning stage, the Aesthetical Dental surgeon performs a CT scan of the patient’s head and upper neck, photographs the face in different projections, and designs dentition models. Based on the results of a thorough examination, the surgeon performs a three-dimensional modeling of the face, and the patient can see what he will be like after the operation and make his wishes.
In addition, changes in the volume of the airways of the nose and pharynx are calculated, which also allows you to get rid of snoring during such an operation. Thanks to such training, the specialist thinks through every step, including a potential problem.
Most adult patients who decide to have surgery come to the clinic with a referral from an orthodontist when the orthodontist sees that the problem cannot be solved with braces alone.
Other patients come to the clinic because they are dissatisfied with their appearance for an extended period, often from adolescence, unsure of themselves, or experiencing functional problems. Patients may be shown orthognathic surgery to align the teeth in such cases.
Orthognathic surgery eliminates facial scars, and due to this, the only visible trace of the operation will be only improved symmetry of your face and health.
After a well-performed orthognathic surgery by Aesthetical Dental surgeons, the harmony of the face is normalized, malocclusion is eliminated, speech defects are partially or entirely, and problems with eating cease to bother.
In addition to the fact that functional defects of a congenital or acquired nature are eliminated in the patient after surgery, he feels more confident and attractive due to improved appearance. The quality of life is changing dramatically for the better.
After the orthognathic procedure, the surgeon gives the patient recommendations for rehabilitation. In addition, he and the orthodontist develop individual tactics for orthodontic treatment. The patient will have to wear braces before and after the operation. In this case, the terms are determined by a specialist for each patient individually.
Aesthetical Dental offers patients experienced surgeons and orthodontists who will help restore the functionality and aesthetics of the bones of the facial skull, bite, and teeth. To learn about the need for orthognathic treatment and how to get it, visit the clinic’s surgeon’s consultation.
After the procedure, the leading surgeon of the clinic gives recommendations for rehabilitation to each patient and develops an individual orthodontic treatment plan together with the patient’s attending orthodontist. An adult patient with a defect in the bite of the teeth is treated simultaneously by a surgeon and an orthodontist.
Before and after the operation, orthodontic treatment follows – it is necessary to wear braces before and after the procedure. However, the orthodontist and orthognathic surgeon determine the timing of orthodontic treatment for each specific case.
