What Is Jaw Reconstruction Surgery?

Jaw reconstruction surgery, commonly referred to as orthognathic surgery or corrective jaw surgery, serves as a technique for correcting or adjusting various jaw irregularities.

Its primary goal is to address both functional and cosmetic concerns associated with the jaw.

This procedure is particularly effective in addressing misalignments of the jaws and teeth, uneven and asymmetrical jaw growth, as well as other dental irregularities that extend beyond mere tooth alignment.

Often, this approach targets the structural aspects of the jaw, involving the manipulation of the upper and/or lower jaw bones.

By lengthening or shortening the jaws, repositioning them upward or downward, or adjusting them inward or outward, you will get a more harmonious bite and facial appearance.

Various factors can contribute to the development of jaw defects, with automobile accidents being the most commonly observed cause.

Jaw reconstruction serves as a comprehensive process employed to address a range of jaw problems, including open bites, difficulties with chewing and swallowing, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder-related pains, excessive tooth wear within the jaw, and others.

Besides, the cheaper cost doesn’t come at the expense of the quality of care received, especially if the patient decides to undergo the surgery in respectable Turkish clinics, such as International Clinics in Istanbul.

Benefits of Jaw Reconstruction Surgery

People facing challenges related to their jaw, facial symmetry, or tooth alignment often encounter difficulties in everyday activities such as chewing, speaking, and sleeping.

For such individuals, jaw reconstruction surgery can be a transformative solution. By skillfully repositioning both the teeth and the jaws, this corrective procedure establishes a more harmonious, functional, and healthy alignment.

While the primary objective of this surgery revolves around enhancing bite functionality, many patients also frequently experience additional benefits in terms of their physical appearance and speech clarity.

In fact, this procedure can effectively address aesthetic concerns such as a protruding jaw or an imbalanced facial profile. To ensure a successful outcome, the utilization of orthodontic devices, including retainers, is often suggested after the procedure.

In short, the surgery encompasses the treatment of various conditions, including:

The Procedure of Jaw Reconstruction Surgery

The duration of the surgery can range from 1 to 4 hours, depending on the complexity of your case. Here are the main steps of the procedure:

1. Anesthesia administration

A specialist anesthetist will administer general anesthesia. Additionally, they will be responsible for ensuring your post-surgery pain relief.

2. Making the incisions

The procedure involves making small incisions through the jawbone, allowing for the precise repositioning of your jaw or jaws to attain the correct alignment. The incisions are typically made within your mouth, thus leaving no visible scars.

3. Jawbones manipulation

Your surgeon will maneuver the jawbones and may add or remove bone tissues. Additionally, they will secure your jaws in their new positions using surgical plates, screws, or wires.

Risks of Jaw Reconstruction Surgery

Undoubtedly, the presence of a skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeon significantly reduces the likelihood of encountering complications during or after the surgery.

Nonetheless, all surgical procedures carry inherent risks and potential complications. In the case of face and jaw surgery, these may encompass:

Cost of Jaw Reconstruction Surgery

Jaw reconstruction surgery costs between 1700-2000 US dollars in Turkey. However, some clinics may charge less than 1700 US dollars if the surgery doesn’t involve many steps or steps.

In contrast, the cost may go up to 7000 US dollars in other countries, especially in North America and Western Europe. Thus, Turkey has a competitive position when it comes to the cost of jaw surgeries.
