Doctors for Orthognathic Surgery in Mulanthuruthy, Kochi
ratings and reviews)
Orthognathic surgery is a corrective jaw surgery that straightens or realigns your jaw, and corrects related skeletal deformities. This type of surgery is done by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) in a hospital setting which involves straightening and realigning the jaws using surgical plates or templates, screws and wires. Although children may have certain birth conditions or orthodontic problems eventually requiring jaw surgery, it is generally appropriate only after the child stops growing. That age is usually around 13 to 15 for girls and 16 to 18 for boys. The surgery usually takes one to three hours, and requires general anesthesia. The risks in this procedure include pain, swelling, bleeding, infection and adverse reaction to anesthesia. After the orthodontic jaw surgery you wear braces for nine to 18 months before the surgery. After your jaw recovers from the surgery, your orthodontist finishes aligning your teeth and eventually removes the braces. The entire orthodontic process, including surgery, may take one to three years. Be sure to follow your dentist's instructions for home-based oral care, which, for children, typically includes brushing after every meal using a small, gentle kids' toothbrushIn general, corrective jaw surgery is considered a medical procedure, not a cosmetic procedure, and is necessary to prevent more expensive medical and dental problems later in life. At minimum, orthognathic surgery treatment cost includes surgeon fees, hospital fees, orthodontics charges, anesthesia fees and pain medications. However, final expenses may depend on a number of conditions unique to the person.
