What are the Benefits of Maxillofacial Surgery

Posted on 6/19/2023 by Pacific Oral and Facial Surgery Center
What are the Benefits of Maxillofacial SurgeryThe jaw is regarded as the facial structure's supporting structure. A misaligned jaw (jaw that protrudes outward or recedes inward) might have an impact on your general health. Even though these conditions are unharmful, some studies show that people with these kinds of abnormalities are more likely to experience emotional and psychological issues.

Maxillofacial surgery helps to reposition the jawbone to your desired shape. The surgeon employs wires, surgical plates, rubber bands, and screws to place your jaws into a new position. Maxillofacial surgery enhances your facial appearance. The following are other benefits of maxillofacial surgery:

Restores Chewing Function

People with misaligned jaws usually have challenges swallowing or chewing food. Maxillofacial surgery will correct these issues, allowing you to eat more comfortably.

Improves your Speech

Jaw and teeth misalignment can impact your speech. Focusing on this issue is crucial, especially for kids who are still learning to talk and pronounce words. Maxillofacial surgery enhances your speech and minimizes discomfort.

Lessen Sleeping Problems

Patients with protruding jaws or recessing inward usually have sleeping and breathing problems. Maxillofacial surgery can correct issues such as sleep apnea, giving you enough sleep and offering energy for your daily activities.

Get rid of Headaches

A misplaced jaw frequently causes severe pain and headaches. After corrective jaw surgery, the pain is gone, and you could need fewer painkillers.

Eliminate Joint Pain

A misaligned jaw can cause you to have prolonged jaw pain. Maxillofacial surgery can help you get relief from this kind of pain. Besides, jaw misalignment can keep your mouth wide open and cause the teeth to be crooked, straining your teeth. The pressure is relieved, and you feel more comfortable after jaw surgery.
You do not need to live with a misaligned jaw just because you were born with it. You can acquire a jaw that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional by using a variety of therapeutic procedures.
