Major Surgical Procedures
Major Surgical Procedures are generally referred as the surgical procedures performed under general anaesthecia which include
- Orthognathic surgeries – It is not very uncommon to have imbalances in jaw growth in some patients which is presented as short/long upper/lower jaw. Imbalances in jaw growth can be treated with removable or fixed orthodontic appliances easily and painlessly in young patients when bones are still growing but it is not possible to modify any bones once the growth completed. In such cases it is mandatory to perform orthognathic surgery in order to bring about the required changes. ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY is a surgical procedure done to bring the balance in jaw size where there is no chance of adjusting by natural growth (means when there is no natural growth left over) and it is done a single/double jaw surgery depending upon the requirement.
- Augmentation/reduction genioplasty – Actually it is a part of orthognathic surgery where chin adjustments are made with the help of surgery or implant prosthesis.
- Surgeries to correct problems associated with traumatic injuries.
