Often these problems will have other debilitating consequences, such as TMJ disorder and sleep apnea, that make it difficult to live a functional and healthy life. The good news is that jaw surgery can effectively resolve all these symptoms and associated conditions! With Dr. Nielsen’s expertise and use of sophisticated virtual technology and anesthesia, he can correct the following issues with comfortable, personalized treatment:
Complex Surgery Made Simple
Jaw surgery is a highly complex procedure that only trained oral and maxillofacial surgeons like Dr. Nielsen are qualified to complete. Using the latest virtual surgery planning software, he expertly maps out your jaw surgery in 3D. Then patient-specific surgical plates are created that Dr. Nielsen will use during your surgery when repositioning your jaws. During surgery, he will bring alignment back to your jaws by moving the lower jaw forward or backward. In some cases, repositioning the upper jaw is required as well. With incredible efficiency and accuracy, our virtually-guided jaw surgery in San Clemente, CA reduces operating time and provides a significantly more predictable and better outcome for you. Jaw surgery is complex, but with our expertise, we can help you experience a simple treatment process and stress-free recovery.
