You can do no better than book an appointment with oral surgeon Dr Alex Rabinovich for a free consult.
Jaw problems with malocclusion are usually the result of the jaws not growing equally, but they can also be caused by accidents such as a car wreck, or they can also be a result of tumors or other disorders. Whatever has caused the problem, it may be causing you difficulties eating, or it may be giving you depression because you are not happy with your appearance. Whether you need jaw surgery for a physical reason or because it is damaging your confidence, Dr Rabinovich is one of the leading Bay Area jaw surgeons and will be able to help you.
Dr Rabinovich has many years of experience and has made trips abroad to help children in need of jaw surgery on a voluntary basis. Of course, no two patients are alike, so you need to make an appointment with Dr Rabinovich so that he can see what your problem is and explain to you what he can do and what the best procedure will be.
His objective will be to ensure that you get the correct bite and restore a normal facial appearance so that you can regain the confidence that you once had, even if that was many years ago as a child. There is no doubt that jaw problems can have a serious effect on the quality of life.
Oral Surgery Here in our San Francisco Office
Orthognathic surgery is carried out in the doctor’s office here in the Financial District of San Francisco under a general anesthetic and will require an overnight stay. Most patients will need to take up to six weeks off work or school for full recovery, as jaw surgery is quite a serious operation. During this time, you will not be able to chew, so you will need to be on what is known as a swallowing diet, which means anything that you can swallow without chewing. Your diet can include liquids, soups, scrambled eggs, meat that is very finely ground, pasta that has been chopped and is soft, ice cream, yogurt, cakes, and so on. Because your diet has changed you may lose some weight, but this is nothing to worry about since you will recover it when you can get back to your usual diet.
