Much of your oral health and bite function relies on symmetry and balance. For instance, if your teeth aren’t properly aligned, then the imbalance can greatly impact the function of your jaw joints and muscles. Likewise, the shape, size, and uniformity of your jawbone plays an important role in your bite’s balance and function. However, irregular jawbone structure isn’t always as noticeable as misaligned teeth, and for many patients, the consequences can become more obvious than the condition itself. Fortunately, we can help many patients overcome the complications of abnormal jawbone structure with personalized oral surgery or jawbone grafting.
When Bone Grafting Is Appropriate
Some patients are born with irregularities in their jawbone, known as congenital issues, and they may spend a lifetime dealing with trouble and discomfort while biting and chewing. For other patients, a traumatic injury to the mouth or face can require surgery to correct, or a chronic condition like periodontal disease can lead to jawbone degradation. Jawbone surgery and bond grafting can be required for many different reasons, and with the ability to perform the surgery in our office, we can help most patients correct, restore, or rebuild their jawbones for healthier, more fully functional smiles.
