Orthognathic Surgery

Reshape Your Smile

Corrective jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, corrects an array of abnormalities of the jaw and facial bones. It’s typically recommended to address any structural problems that impact a person’s ability to bite, their facial appearance, or their overall jaw function. Orthognathic surgery can be used to rectify issues relating to malocclusions, facial asymmetry, sleep apnea, or difficulties with chewing or speaking.

Round Rock Oral Surgery & Dental Implants is a leading oral surgery practice dedicated to reshaping patient’s lives through orthognathic surgery. Dr. Weber harnesses years of experience and expertise to restore a patient's oral function while improving any aesthetic concerns.

Orthognathic Surgery Procedure

Like any procedure we offer, the first step in the orthognathic surgery process is a consultation with Dr. Weber, our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. In this consultation, he’ll perform an oral exam to create a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and that can achieve improved oral function. During this appointment, he may take 3D scans to further assess your condition.

On that day of surgery, you’ll receive anesthesia to induce sleep to ensure your procedure is pain-free. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, your surgeon will make incisions inside of the mouth to access the jawbones and avoid any external scarring. Depending on your condition, small plates, screws, or another fixation device will be placed to secure the repositioned jawbones.

After the adjustments are made, the incisions are closed with sutures.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay overnight in the hospital to recover. In the weeks following your surgery, you may experience some discomfort and swelling. You may also be asked to adhere to dietary restrictions while closely following the post-operative instructions received.

Types of Anesthesia

We offer several forms of anesthesia to ensure your comfort.
