Facial Numbness After Jaw Surgery, Explained By This Dental Specialist

Jaw surgery can seem pretty daunting. However, if you’re looking for a solution to correct an overbite or underbite related to jaw alignment, you may be considering it. 

It can be a scary, albeit effective treatment that aims to improve jaw and dental function and appearance. A DxD reader, who has been considering surgery, has parents that are against his decision due to the possible risk of permanent facial numbness.

Is there a solid basis for such claims? Can jaw surgery really carry this risk and if so, how can this risk be minimised? Dental specialist and oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr Ho Kok Sen, responded. Here is what he had to say.
