Dental Surgeries in Portland
Surgery is a corrective procedure to treat and fix abnormalities of the facial bones, such as the jaws. Often an issue with the jawbones can cause difficulty chewing, talking, sleeping even breathing. Commonly jaw surgery is used to correct an open bite, protruding lower jaw or receding lower jaw.
Orthognathic surgery, together with orthodontic treatment, can correct problems and improve the overall appearance of the facial profile. For more severe problems double jaw surgery is performed on both the upper and lower jaw. Luckily it is a real thing.
