Newly diagnosed: surgical option?
#11
I have explored the possibility of Maxofacial sergury & it seems to come down to the answer to this question. Do you need this sergury & will it fix the problem"?
To obtain a satisfactory answer, you must be reffered to a maxofacial surgeon. He/she will order tests, x-rays & scans from which an accurate determination can be achieved. I my case, the answer was a "no". But who knows? In your case the answer may be different. In any case, the doctor I consulted told me, when a patient was assesed as being suitable for the procedure, the results were outstanding, but as I say the doctor will decide what's best for you based on test results. If you feel you would like to find out more, get a referal from your doc. & begin the journey. very best of luck.
