Maxillary Orthognathic Surgery for a Healthy and Aesthetic Smile

A beautiful smile carries great confidence behind it. A healthy and aesthetic smile positively affects a person's social life and overall health. According to studies, 70% of people state that their smile directly affects their confidence. At Dentmax Dental Health Clinic, we aim to meet both the aesthetic and functional needs of our patients with maxillary orthognathic surgery. In this article, we will share the surgery process and its benefits with you.

What is Maxillary Orthognathic Surgery?

Maxillary orthognathic surgery is a surgical procedure performed when the upper jaw needs to be moved forward or backward. This surgery is necessary in cases where the upper jaw is in an incorrect position due to congenital jaw anomalies, trauma, or developmental disorders in the jaw. An incorrectly positioned jaw can cause not only aesthetic discomfort but also negatively affect chewing, speaking, and breathing functions. Orthodontic treatment is required before this procedure. The surgery is prepared with orthodontics, and this preparation process can take 12-18 months.

Digital Planning and Surgery Process

With digital planning, the surgery is thoroughly planned in advance. Maxillary setback or maxillary advancement planning is done. Maxillary orthognathic surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes an average of 2-3 hours. During the surgery, the jawbone is cut and repositioned to the desired position, then fixed with plates and screws. The postoperative recovery period lasts about 4-6 weeks, during which our patients need to follow specific diet and care recommendations. Orthodontic treatment continues for 4-6 months after the surgery.
