Jaw Surgery Recovery Coeur d’Alene

Published on January 11, 2019

During jaw surgery, the upper jaw is moved and may be secured in position using tiny plates, wires, rubber bands and screws. Alteration to the mandible is achieved using bone grafts to align the lower jaw into the correct position. Pain medication will be prescribed as necessary, and you’ll be given post-treatment advice for your jaw surgery recovery. You may also be provided with a modified diet.

Dr. Daniel Cullum offers advanced techniques and model predictions using computers to demonstrate details of the jaw surgery as well as provide an idea of how you’ll look afterwards. He can also work closely with your dentist and orthodontist during the entire treatment, including the important jaw surgery recovery phase.

For more information about jaw surgery recovery, contact the Sandpoint office of Dr. Cullum. Dr. Cullum is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and specializes in these types of surgeries.
