When Might Surgical Orthodontics Be Needed?
Jaw Growth Cessation
Jaw surgery is typically recommended once the jaw has completed its growth phase. This is because this procedure aims to address structural issues in the jaw, and performing it before the jaw has finished growing can lead to complications. In females, jaw growth typically ceases by the age of 16, while in males, it usually stops by around 18.
Beyond functional concerns, adults may also opt for surgical orthodontics to enhance their facial aesthetics. Orthognathic surgery can correct jaw discrepancies that affect the overall facial balance and profile, resulting in a more pleasing and harmonious appearance.
Adults Seeking Bite Correction
Adults who experience improper bites or malocclusion may seek surgical orthodontics when these issues cannot be effectively corrected with orthodontic treatment alone. As the jaw has stopped growing in adults, surgery becomes a viable option to align the jaw properly and achieve a functional bite.
Surgical orthodontics offers adults a comprehensive solution to address not only bite problems but also aesthetic goals. By combining orthodontic treatment with surgery, adults can achieve both functional improvements and a more confident smile.
