How Jaw Surgery in New London Will Benefit You, New London, Connecticut

Jaw surgery is a procedure that may sometimes be necessary to solve issues traditional orthodontics can’t fully address. By consulting with an oral surgery professional, you can determine whether or not it is something you will benefit from. At SoundView Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in New London, CT, Dr. Ross J. Sanfilippo and his team of experienced experts will assess your condition and decide whether or not you are a good candidate for jaw surgery.

If you do get the procedure, here are a few of the benefits you can expect:

  • Improved Appearance: If your jawbones are misaligned, corrective oral surgery can fix this problem. As a result, your facial appearance will also improve.
  • New-London-CT-Jaw-SurgeryEasier Chewing: When the jawbones are misaligned, your teeth don’t meet each other properly, and as such, they fail to work for you as they should. Jaw surgery will properly address this issue, making tasks like chewing much easier.
  • Improved Speech: Jaw problems often contribute to speech issues as well. When surgery is used to correct the problem, the patient’s speech typically improves.
  • Better Breathing: A misaligned jaw can also contribute to breathing difficulties. If a dentist or oral surgeon determines this is the root cause of your breathing problems, they will likely recommend jaw surgery as a treatment.

To learn more about whether or not jaw surgery is right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Sanfilippo at SoundView Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in New London, CT. With more than two decades of experience in the field, he has the training and expertise necessary to determine if this course of treatment is the best choice for you.
