Oral Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons are qualified in both dentistry and medicine. The surgery they undertake generally aims to correct functional and cosmetic abnormalities in the face and mouth and can involve jaw surgery (Orthognathic) and chin surgery (Genioplasty).
Jaw surgery aims to improve the relationship between your teeth and jaws, harmonising facial appearance as well as improving speech, breathing and chewing. It can bring significant improvements to quality of life as well increasing self-esteem and confidence.
Facial, chin and jaw surgery are quite often used as a form of facial rejuvenation or if you are concerned about overcrowded or misaligned teeth. Aesthetically, this can be a rightful concern but more practically, even something like ‘buck teeth’ can cause breathing, oral hygiene and bite irregularities.
At Baddow Hospital, our consultants can help if you want to see an improvement in your appearance and/or your teeth, bite, smile, chewing function and, in certain instances, breathing and speech.
