Orthognathic surgery is provided by our experienced and caring oral surgeon to correct misalignments, damages or other abnormalities in the upper or lower jaw. Also known as corrective jaw surgery, orthognathic surgery is performed by Dr. Imanuel Babayev to improve function of the jaw. It can also be used to specifically address problems with breathing, occlusion (bite) and chewing ability, or speaking that are due to poor jaw or tooth alignment.
Corrective jaw surgery in Norwalk, Connecticut, can also dramatically affect facial structure and appearance, although this is usually not the primary reason the surgery is performed. In order to perform the procedure successfully, the jaw bone(s) will be repositioned in accordance with the patient’s specific needs. Inconspicuous incisions are typically made inside the mouth in order to achieve the best aesthetic and functional results.
Orthognathic surgery can involve procedures such as osteotomy (bone cutting), bone grafts, distraction osteogenesis (stretching of the bone) and orthodontic (braces) care. Orthognathic correction is conducted in stages, and the course of treatment can last from a few months to a year or more. Our primary goal at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Fairfield County is to ensure your comfort and improve the longevity and function of your oral health.
