Does Orthodontic Surgery Hurt?

Posted on 2/6/2023 by Star Orthodontics
Does Orthodontic Surgery Hurt?Orthognathic surgery is a kind of orthodontic therapy used to repair severe instances of malocclusion, improper bites, and anomalies of the jawbone. An orthodontist will wait until the jaw has completed growing before determining if surgery is the best course of treatment.

Surgery of this kind may only be performed by a licensed oral and maxillofacial surgeon certified by the state as having the necessary training and credentials. The procedure is conducted under general anesthesia, so the patient does not experience any discomfort.

After the anesthetic wears off, patients often suffer pain, which may linger for several days and is treated with analgesics.

Orthodontic Surgery is Very Effective

Through orthodontic surgery, it is possible to realign the jaw, which then permits the teeth to perform their job of biting to the fullest extent feasible. Chewing is made simpler due to this, and you may find that you can now consume things that you were previously unable to swallow.

If you can increase the functionality of your chewing, you will also notice a major improvement in the process of your digestion. This change will be noticeable.

In addition to this, having your jaw correctly aligned will make your teeth seem to be in better condition. The amount of wear and strain on the jaw is reduced when the bite is precisely aligned. It is because the bite's pressure is distributed evenly across the jaw.
