Are you self conscious about your smile? If you have an overbite or an underbite, you may benefit from orthognathic surgery in Ohio, which can realign your jaw to create a more balanced smile. Many people don’t realize that an overbite or underbite can be corrected with a simple procedure that repositions the jawbones and improves the appearance of their smile.
The change can be significant and give your self confidence a boost!
Here are three ways that orthognathic surgery in Ohio can help to enhance your smile:
- Restores optimal jaw functioning. An overbite or underbite can put stress on certain facial muscles and facial bone structure. Do you suffer from frequent headaches, TMJ, or chronic pain around the jaw area? These problems are likely linked to a misaligned jaw. When you undergo orthognathic surgery, you can enjoy the benefit of optimal jaw functioning. You may experience fewer headaches or problems with chewing, or simply find that you hold less tension around your neck because your jaw is now functioning properly. Dr. Quereshy may recommend surgery to correct functional problems.
- Improves physical appearance. One of the biggest reasons people undergo orthognathic surgery in Ohio is to improve their smile. It can serve as a cosmetic procedure to improve the contours of your face and will enhance your smile as your facial structure becomes more balanced. When you have an overbite or an underbite, it can be very difficult to maintain a natural-looking smile. If you have low self confidence because of a misaligned jaw that is affecting your smile, talk to Dr. Quereshy about treatment options.
- Improves oral health. If you tend to grind your teeth or have problems chewing properly because of poor jaw alignment, your teeth can wear down faster. Undergoing surgery can help to save those teeth and improve your overall oral health. As you age, this can result in increased self confidence when you smile and it reduces the risk of losing teeth and other oral health issues.
Misalignment of the jaw can impact your facial appearance and also trigger problems such as headaches, TMJ, excessive wearing of the teeth, and dry mouth. If you are self conscious about your smile, set up an orthognathic surgery consultation with Dr. Quereshy today!
