The jaw is a very important facial feature, both functionally and cosmetically. If misaligned, daily activities that would normally be performed without a second thought such as chewing, swallowing, and breathing may become challenging. At New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Dental Implant Center, Dr. Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. offers orthognathic surgery in NYC, or jaw surgery, to correct the position of the jaw. A misaligned jaw can be the result of an injury, birth defect, or a discrepancy between the lower and upper jaw’s growth rates. Patients often suffer from chewing, biting, swallowing, and breathing difficulties, have speech problems, chronic jaw pain, chronic headaches, chronic dry mouth, or sleep apnea. Patients may also display telltale facial features which they would like corrected such as a protruding jaw, facial imbalance, a receding chin, or the inabilities to fully close the mouth. Dr. Stein uses the most advanced treatment options and surgical techniques at New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Dental Implant Center to provide lasting and satisfying results for all his patients, so whether your jaw misalignment was caused genetically or by an accident, Dr. Stein has the skill and experience to improve your jaw’s function and aesthetic appearance.  

Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D performs orthognathic surgery in New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Dental Implant Center. Daily activities, like eating, breathing, and sleeping, that should come to you naturally and easily are problematic with a misaligned jaw. Orthognathic Surgery in NYC can relieve patients of the painful symptoms, unsatisfying facial characteristics, and functional problems associated with a misaligned jaw, revealing a life which daily tasks are easier and less painful.

Orthognathic surgery in New York City is usually a collaborative effort between your oral surgeon in NY and an orthodontist. Together, they will reposition parts or all of your lower jaw, upper jaw, and chin. Braces may also be used both before and after the surgery in order to move your teeth into a more correct and attractive position in addition to correcting your jaw to improve the overall balance, appearance, and health of your mouth. Dr. Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. and his staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about orthognathic surgery.
