Medicines and Jaw Surgery

Jaw Surgery

Welcome to Maark Dental’s comprehensive guide on how medicines and jaw surgery work together to assist patients in achieving optimal oral health and functionality. At Maark Dental, we prioritize your well-being and offer advanced treatments tailored to your unique needs.

Medicines play a crucial role in pre and post-operative care for patients undergoing jaw surgery. Whether correcting misalignments, addressing structural issues, or treating underlying conditions, medications are an integral part of the healing process.

Pre-surgery, medications may be prescribed to:

Prepare for Surgery: Antibiotics might be given to prevent infections post-surgery.

Manage Pain: Analgesics help alleviate discomfort and manage pain during the recovery phase.

Reduce Swelling: Anti-inflammatory medications aid in reducing swelling and inflammation post-surgery.

Control Infections: Prophylactic antibiotics may be administered to prevent infections during and after surgery.

Post-surgery, medications are vital for:

Pain Management: Analgesics are continued to manage pain during the recovery period.

Preventing Infections: Antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent or treat any potential infections that could occur post-surgery.

Facilitating Healing: Certain medications assist in faster healing and recovery of the surgical site.

Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, corrects various conditions such as misaligned jaws, bite problems, congenital issues, or jaw-related sleep disorders. This surgical intervention aims to improve function, aesthetics, and overall oral health.

Key benefits of jaw surgery include:

Enhanced Bite Function: Aligning the jaws improves bite functionality, allowing for better chewing and speaking abilities.

Improved Facial Balance: Correcting jaw misalignments can enhance facial symmetry and aesthetics.

Reduced TMJ Disorders: Jaw surgery can alleviate symptoms associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, such as pain and difficulty in jaw movement.

Enhanced Breathing: In some cases, jaw surgery can improve breathing by addressing obstructive sleep apnea or other airway-related issues.
