Promoting Oral Health through Understanding Jaw Surgery with TruForm Surgery



If you’re considering jaw surgery as a viable treatment option for oral health, you might be grappling with dental or facial irregularities such as: 

  • Malocclusion (misalignment of teeth)
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder
  • Sleep apnea
  • A facial injury

If that’s the case, you’ve arrived at the right place; based in the heart of Brighton, MI, TruForm Surgery is dedicated to making oral and maxillofacial surgeries safer, smoother, and more transformative than ever.

What is Jaw Surgery?

Jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, is a surgical procedure to correct a wide range of minor and major dental and skeletal irregularities. Here at TruForm Surgery, under the excellent leadership of Dr. Eidson, we’re advocates of this procedure as it directly contributes to enhancing oral health, improving breathing, boosting self-esteem, and overall quality of life.

These comprehensive procedures are performed by experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeons like Dr. Eidson—the best in Brighton, MI—and are best undertaken after the jaw has stopped growing, typically around the age of 16 for females and 18 for males.

The Procedure: What to Expect

Jaw surgery at TruForm is carried out under general anesthesia. Our team of highly skilled professionals will make sure that you’re entirely comfortable. Once the jaw has been moved into the correct position, tiny screws and plates will secure it. 

No external incisions mean no facial scarring. Before proceeding with the procedure, you’ll have an in-depth discussion about your surgical plan with Dr. Eidson, during which every step of the process will be explained.

Benefits of Jaw Surgery with TruForm

As mentioned earlier, this procedure can help tackle a myriad of medical problems, but it can also bring benefits like: 

  • Improved facial harmony
  • Enhanced chewing
  • Improved speaking
  • Enhanced breathing function

Communication is paramount at our clinic, and we ensure every patient is well-prepared for the post-operative journey. 

Following your surgery, you can expect some discomfort, but medication will be given to manage pain. A nutritious diet and good oral hygiene are crucial to promoting healing and maintaining oral health. Also, keeping follow-up appointments allows us to monitor your progress and tend to any concerns promptly.
