Jaw Surgery in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV

What Is Jaw Surgery?

If you have misalignment of the jaw and are experiencing medical conditions such as TMJ, jaw pain, or other problems, you may be a good candidate for jaw surgery. Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, can also improve your appearance by repositioning the jawbone and correcting any asymmetry of the face. This type of surgery is performed by an oral and facial surgeon and may be combined with other procedures and treatments for even better results.

How Jaw Surgery Works

Your oral surgeon will perform a thorough evaluation of your jaw and facial structure during your consultation. Digital X-rays we take during this visit will give us a clear idea of where the misalignment is occurring and the extent of restricted movement.

Jaw surgery can be performed for both functional and cosmetic reasons, and will alter the position of the facial features. We can effectively rebalance the facial structure by shifting the jaw because jaw placement is linked to the nose, mouth, and cheeks. In some cases, we can perform jaw surgery in conjunction with orthodontic treatment to correct an overbite or underbite.

Patients with TMJ may also be good candidates for jaw surgery. Symptoms include facial swelling, dizziness, earaches, and pain in the jaw. Our team can diagnose and treat TMJ with jaw surgery and other treatment if necessary.

“I was referred to Nevada Oral and Facial Surgery by my dentist when I needed to have my wisdom teeth removed. My experience was flawless from start to finish! Making an appointment was simple (which is a big deal when it comes to medical offices), and the ladies at the front desk were very helpful in getting my paperwork together.  The entire office staff is kind and friendly, and Dr. Johnson was fantastic! During my consultation, he went over my x-rays, explained the procedure, and gave me a full picture of what I could expect on procedure day.  I was even able to make a last-minute appointment post-procedure when I had some concerns.  Dr. Johnson was very understanding and addressed all of my concerns right away. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great oral surgeon and hassle-free experience.”
