If you’re living with serious jaw problems, the debilitating consequences can diminish your day-to-day life. Eating and speaking are painful and difficult. You have jaw and joint paint, sore facial muscles, and headaches. An unbalanced facial appearance, protruding jaw, or recessed chin make it a struggle to feel confident and attractive. The relieving news is that the solution to your chronic and sometimes complex functional and cosmetic issues can frequently be solved with corrective jaw surgery in Shreveport, Bossier City, and Natchitoches, LA. If your jaw pain is keeping you from living a comfortable, functional, and confident life, it may be time to meet with an oral surgeon.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have spent years of additional education and residency experience outside of dental school to specialize in procedures like corrective jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery. Having achieved the highest level of surgical training in the dental field, they are the only dental specialists qualified to offer this treatment. Our oral surgeons at ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery have years of experience completing these surgeries using minimally invasive techniques and innovative technologies to ensure predictable and lasting results. With such extensive training and wide-reaching clinical experience, rarely do any of our patients have conditions that fall out of the scope of our expertise. You’ll be in skilled hands by seeking treatment with our trusted surgical team in Shreveport, Bossier City, and Natchitoches, LA.
In many cases of corrective jaw surgery, the problems you’re experiencing are a result of jaws that are not properly aligned. This is what causes chronic jaw pain, TMJ problems, misaligned teeth, and other significant problems. The purpose of our jaw surgery is to bring alignment back to your jaws, and thus your life. This is accomplished by moving the lower jaw forward or backward. In some cases, repositioning the upper jaw is required as well. This can be accomplished in a single surgery you can receive at our local hospital. Once the jaw(s) is in proper alignment and balanced, your mouth can function comfortably and with ease, with teeth that now come together properly. For many of our patients, corrective jaw surgery is life-changing, allowing them to finally enjoy life free from chronic jaw pain, TMJ problems, bite issues, and esthetic concerns!
