    Mouth, Teeth and Jaw – Orthognathic Surgery

    Orthognathic surgery is a surgical procedure performed to correct structural abnormalities in the face and jaw area. This surgical treatment aims to correct discrepancies between the jawbone, facial bones and teeth.

    Orthognathic surgery can correct functional problems such as chewing, speech and breathing as well as aesthetic reasons. These types of surgical procedures are usually performed together with orthodontic treatments: brackets or clear aligners. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is usually performed by dentists and oral surgeons.

    Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Treatments

    Orthognathic surgery may be performed to treat or correct the following conditions:

    Tooth Extraction

    Advanced decayed teeth, teeth with eruption problems, or teeth that need to be removed for other reasons can be extracted by oral and maxillofacial surgery.

    Dental Implants

    Implants are placed in the jawbone to treat missing teeth. This surgical procedure involves placing artificial roots in structures similar to tooth roots.

    Jaw Asymmetry

    To straighten teeth, jaw bones may need to be reshaped or moved. If the jawbone is unequal or asymmetrical, it can affect facial symmetry. This problem can be corrected with orthognathic surgery.

    Treatment of Facial Traumas

    Fractures of facial bones due to accidents, blows or other traumas can be treated with oral and maxillofacial surgery.

    Removal of Oral Cysts and Tumors

    Cysts and tumors in the mouth and jaw area can be removed surgically and sent to the pathology laboratory for examination.

    Jaw Joint Problems

    Incompatibilities between the upper and lower jaw can prevent the teeth from closing properly. This may have negative effects on speech, chewing and facial aesthetics. Treatment of problems such as pain, tightness or limitation of movement related to jaw joints may be included in the scope of oral and jaw surgery.

    Repair of Cleft Lip and Palate

    Clefts of the lip and palate are known as orofacial clefts, which are a congenital condition. These clefts are openings in the lip and/or palate area of babies that exist from the moment of birth. This condition occurs during a developmental stage when facial bones and tissues do not fuse properly. Cleft lip and palate can cause aesthetic and functional problems, so treatment may be required.

    Repair of cleft lip and palate is usually performed by surgical intervention. These surgical procedures are performed to close the clefts and restore normal appearance and function.

    Snoring and Sleep Apnea Surgery

    Soft tissue surgery or jaw surgery can be performed to treat snoring and sleep apnea. In advanced cases, it can be used to treat sleep apnea problems.

    Facial Aesthetics and Reconstruction

    Surgical interventions may be performed for facial aesthetics or post-traumatic reconstruction. Having an open or closed profile structure of the face may create aesthetic problems. Orthognathic surgery can be used for facial profile correction.

    Oral and maxillofacial surgery is usually performed by dentists and oral surgeons. The treatment plan is customized based on the patient’s specific needs and health condition. Depending on the type of surgical procedure, recovery time and complications may vary.

    Oral and maxillofacial surgery aims to improve patients’ oral and jaw health, functionality and aesthetic appearance. The treatment plan is determined according to the patient’s specific needs and health condition. Orthodontic treatment can continue after surgery. It is important to consult with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or orthodontist to evaluate treatment options and create the appropriate treatment plan.
