Jaw Surgery Fixes More Than Your Smile
As the only movable bone in your face, your lower jaw (mandible) plays a critical role in everyday actions like speaking, chewing, and smiling. If your mandible is out of alignment with your upper jaw, you may not be able to do many of those without considerable difficulty or embarrassment. When your jaws aren’t well-aligned it causes your teeth to not fit together properly. What’s more, when your teeth are misaligned because one jaw is bigger than the other it can cause your teeth to break or be worn down prematurely. By moving your jaws into the correct position, our oral surgeons can restore your ability to complete normal functions without any trouble—right here in our Dana Point, CA office.
