Maxillomandibular Advancement

Maxillomandibular Advancement

Maxillomandibular advancement (sometimes called jaw advancement or bimaxillary advancement) is often performed in patients who have not obtained relief from other procedures for sleep apnea. In this procedure, the upper and lower jaws are moved forward, enlarging the space for breathing in throat. It may also be a first-line treatment for patients who have jaw abnormalities.

Our surgeons do not currently perform this procedure, but they have trained extensively in it and have performed it in the past. With their experience, they can discuss the advantages and disadvantages for a specific patient when making decisions about treatment options.
