There is no doubt that any surgery is a burden. However, for jaw surgery, Chattanooga patients find relief at East Brainerd Oral Surgery. Our goal is to bless you with a safe procedure – and give you peace of mind throughout the process.
Many people complain of problems or pain in their jaw. However, most jaw problems present with minimal signs and symptoms. (For instance, low grade pain or a popping sound every now and then). As a result, people tend to disregard symptoms in hopes that the problem will resolve on its own.
Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. Jaw problems may be rare – but when they occur, they require immediate intervention from specialists or risk the problem becoming much worse over time. What begins as minor pain could very well end up as complete jaw lock. We’ve seen patients with pain so severe that it interferes with eating as well as speech. Jaw issues have the potential to seriously impact your lifestyle.
For Jaw Surgery, Chattanooga Patients Turn to Us to Relieve:
- Pain in the jaw joint
- Limitation of mouth opening
- Clicking or crunching sounds during opening and closing
- Severely crowded teeth
- Mismatch between the sizes of the upper and lower jaws, where braces can’t treat the problem on their own
Jaw surgeries are quite tricky. Not only do they require exceptional skill, but they take quite some time for recovery on part of the patient. Expect to be restricted to a soft diet for at least a couple of weeks, with limitations in mouth opening and speech. However, the resulting freedom you experience will all be worth it.
