Lower Jaw Correction in Mumbai

The surgical procedure used is called mandibular surgery, which involves cutting and moving your jaw to a new position. This takes place under general anesthesia.

A small, external cut by your jaw can be required but would quickly become almost invisible and is in any event, rare. The operation is normally carried out from inside the mouth, so there are no external scars.

Once your jaw is repositioned, tiny titanium plates and screws are used to hold this in place. There can be circumstances where they will be removed, although as with most bone surgery, they normally stay in place.

Retaining measures can be added after surgery, to help guide your teeth into their new bite. Your teeth will not normally be wired together but small elasticated bands are likely to be in place for a while.
