The human face is the mirror of the inner soul. Everyone deserves a pleasing beautiful face. However, certain deformities may affect the face either during growth or sometimes by birth. This may lead to deviation from normal facial features.

 

Corrective jaw surgery may be required in many conditions, most common being:

  • Receding lower jaw and chin
  • Protruding jaw
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Open bite (space between the upper and lower teeth when the mouth is closed)
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Post-traumatic facial disfigurement or malocclusion
  • Inability to make the lips meet without straining
  • Chronic mouth breathing
  • Sleep apnea (breathing problems when sleeping, including snoring)
Common birth defects which warrant facial surgery:
  • Cleft facial deformity
  • Micrognathia
  • Hemifacial mirosomia
  • Treacher Collins syndrome

Corrective jaw or Orthognathic surgery is performed to correct numerous such minor and major skeletal and dental irregularities, including the misalignment of jaws and teeth. Not only can surgery improve your appearance dramatically but also improve chewing, speaking and breathing.

Management of these deformities requires meticulous planning based on radiographs, dental models and various facial measurements. Initially surgery is simulated on jaw models to fabricate guiding splints. These guiding splints are then used during actual surgery, to position the upper and lower jaws in their new predetermined and preferred positions. Sometimes minor soft tissue corrections may be required and are done later only if they are needed to compliment facial aesthetics.

At Smilekraft, we have experienced team of orthodontist and Dr. Ketaki and Dr. Shashwat as Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons who have taken special training in Orthognathic Surgery.

Primarily, we need to determine whether you are a candidate for Orthognathic surgery. Then we decide the treatment required for you. Orthodontic treatment may be a part of the entire treatment process. The appropriate surgical procedure is then determined. We 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.

 
Most commonly performed surgical procedures would be:
  • Bilateral Sagittal Split Osteotomy (BSSO)
  • LeFort I Osteotomy
  • Subapical Osteotomy
  • Anterior Maxillary Osteotomy (AMO)

An alternate surgical procedure is Distraction Osteogenesis which may sometimes be recommended.

We also perform Facial augmentations where ever necessary.
