Surgical Orthodontics in Iowa City, IA
5-Star-Rated Care for Your Award-Winning Smile
Many people don’t realize that problems such as bad bites, jaw bone abnormalities, or misaligned jaws can be corrected with orthognathic surgery. Orthognathic simply means “straight jaws” and when coupled with orthodontics afterward, will result in the realignment of your teeth.
Typically, surgical orthodontics is recommended as a last-resort treatment option, but there may be certain situations where opting for surgery can produce your best result. If you need surgical orthodontics in Iowa City, IA, our experienced orthodontist, Dr. Mergen, will work closely with an oral surgeon to prepare your teeth for the surgery.
When Should You Consider Surgery?
Orthognathic surgery can help you to chew, speak, and breathe better. Frequently, it can also help to enhance your appearance. Here are some common reasons surgery may be recommended:
- Chronic headaches
- Chronic jaw pain or jaw joint pain
- Chronic mouth breathing or dry mouth
- TMJ pain / TMD pain
- Breathing problems while asleep (sleep apnea)
- Difficulty chewing, biting, or swallowing
- Difficulty closing lips completely
- Excessive wearing of the teeth
- Open bite (i.e., space left between your upper & lower teeth when your mouth is closed)
- An uneven facial appearance from the front or side
- Receding chin or protruding jaw
- Facial injury or birth defects
