Our jaws are very intricate structures. They are composed of two major bones – the mandible (AKA the lower jaw) and the skull which contains the upper jaw and teeth. They are joined together through a variety of delicate connections, all aimed at the smooth movement of the mouth during eating and speech. But what if a problem were to happen within that delicate system? Then your eating and speech – not to mention appearance – would be seriously compromised. To correct a jaw problem, you may need an intervention from our specialists in jaw surgery Calhoun, GA patients rate highly.
