Orthognathic Surgery | Austintown OH

Jaw Surgery 

Orthognathic surgery is needed when jaws don’t meet correctly and/or teeth don’t seem to fit with jaws. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and corrective jaw surgery repositions a misaligned jaw. This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly.

Who Needs Orthognathic Surgery?

People who can benefit from orthognathic surgery include those with an improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly. Jaw growth is a gradual process and in some instances, the upper and lower jaws may grow at different rates. The result can be a host of problems that can affect chewing function, speech, long-term oral health and appearance. Injury to the jaw and birth defects can also affect jaw alignment. Orthodontics alone can correct bite problems when only the teeth are involved. Orthognathic surgery may be required for the jaws when repositioning is necessary.

Difficulty in the following areas should be evaluated:

  • Difficulty in chewing, biting or swallowing
  • Speech problems
  • Chronic jaw or TMJ pain
  • Open bite
  • Protruding jaw
  • Breathing problems

Any of these symptoms can exist at birth, be acquired after birth as a result of hereditary or environmental influences, or as a result of trauma to the face. Before any treatment begins, a consultation will be held to perform a complete examination with x-rays. During the pre-treatment consultation process, feel free to ask any questions that you have regarding your treatment. When you are fully informed about the aspects of your care, you and your dental team can make the decision to proceed with treatment together.

Patient Review by Angie L

Dr Billy was confident and made me feel like I could 100% trust him, which put me at ease about a procedure I had put off for years bc of fear. I got 3 wisdom teeth surgically removed that were impacted and sideways and I barely bled at all after the surgery! Dr. Personally called me to check up on me at home after the procedure, that says a lot! Would highly recommend this office. Staff was friendly too! Got me right in and barely any waiting time!

This is my third visit with Dr Billy. He has done wisdom teeth extraction for two of my sons and I also brought my exhusband to him to have 8 teeth extracted. I love the care that you receive here. I will always come back here and recommend them to anyone needing oral surgery. The staff is knowledgeable.

Wonderful experience! I was so nervous to have a wisdom tooth and molar extracted. The Dental Assistant, Emily, was so sweet and comforting and had me laughing the whole time. Dr. Billy was in and out quickly and I couldn't believe how fast both teeth were out. The whole procedure was so quick and easy and I was back home in no time!
