Some people suffer from jaw problems from birth, while in other cases problems may be caused by unequal growth of the jawbones. Additionally, jaw discrepancies can be the result of trauma – such as a road accident – or disease. The resulting underbite or overbite can cause problems with eating, create nasal breathing problems, and can have a very direct effect on the patient’s confidence and ability to mix socially if he or she is worried about facial appearance.
The good news is that an oral surgeon in San Francisco for jaw surgery, such as our Dr Alex Rabinovich, can undertake surgery to correct all the problems arising from an underbite or overbite including any associated nasal breathing problems.
It may be that your dentist has suggested that you consider oral surgery to correct a deformity and has referred you to another oral surgeon. Even if this is the case, it is always the best idea to get a second opinion from Dr Rabinovich as he is renowned as a top oral surgeon by members of his own profession. No two problems are exactly the same, no two surgeries are the same, and every patient is different and will have different ideas also.
