Mandibular Advancement for Underbite
Some kids are born with a very small or recessed lower jaw. In most cases this does not cause many problems, but in a small number of patients it can cause severe problems. The Pediatrics on Park team proudly offers mandibular advancement treatment options that can address these issues. We serve parents and their loved ones in South Plainfield, NJ, and the surrounding areas.
When it comes to orthodontic treatment, there is no one size fits all treatment approach. The Pediatrics on Park team provides mandibular advancement that is completed in combination with either of our orthodontic procedures: braces, or Invisalign. Jaw surgery and braces is a great option for patients who have significant bite problems that may not be able to be fixed with our orthodontics alone.
Severe underbites that are left untreated can cause a host of issues for our pediatric patients, including:
- Extreme jaw pain
- Constant headaches
- Pain or discomfort when chewing
- Sleep apnea
- Speech problems
