Corrective Jaw Surgery for Overbites, Underbites, and Crossbites
Orthognathic surgery is a procedure which involves moving the upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible) to an anatomically correct position, which allows for a good occlusion (bite), opening of the airway and facial symmetry. Patients who require orthognathic surgery are patients that exhibit a bad bite (malocclusion), facial asymmetry or have moderate-to-severe sleep apnea. It is important to correct these conditions, as they may be the root causes for improper chewing, facial dysfunction, speech issues, joint pain, and sleep disorders.
Malocclusion and Facial Asymmetry
A minor malocclusion can be corrected with simple orthodontics. Some patients have a skeletal deformity of the jaw(s) that results in a malocclusion, which requires a combination of orthodontic and surgery to correct it. The surgery is performed on adults and teens as long as growth has been completed.
The cautious me has gone forever now. I feel like on seven cloud and the confidence of pretty smile that “Dental Arche” has given me is just unexplainable.
As we were visitors in Delhi, it was a huge relief to find a good dentist in case of emergency. Dr Aval was very professional and friendly. He put our mind at ease and suggested the best options / treatments to be done. It was a satisfactory experience.
Dr. Aval has a magical touch in his hands, i didn’t feel a thing while he worked on correcting my dental issues. He truly did architect my new smile in the most painless n discomfort-free manner. Totally recommend.
