Square Jaw Correction
A square jaw which is due to a protruding mandibular angle, gives a tough and inflexible masculine look. The correction of a square jaw can have a positive double effect; facial contours soften and the neck appears beautifully elongated. For the square jaw correction procedure, incisions are made inside the mouth with the use of an operating saw. Not only will the angular jawbone be repositioned, but the operated area as well will be repositioned to create a natural looking curve.
Once surgery is scheduled, the surgeon will discuss what type of surgery you require and whether you may need a bone graft from another part of your body to build up a part of your jaw that is too small.
Orthognathic surgery is the process of reshaping your face with orthodontics and corrective jaw surgery. You might have a bite problem if your jaws do not seem to meet correctly and your teeth do not see to fit with your jaws. Your face may appear off balance, it might be difficult to eat or to speak certain sounds, and you may not be happy with the way you look. This can be solved with the repositioning of your teeth and facial bones to create a more balanced appearance with jaws that work well together.
Oral and maxillofacial treatment offers extensive treatment for square jaw correction.
