About

Dr. John Lazzara practices Orthodontics in Jacksonville Beach, FL. Comprehensive orthodontic treatment includes metal wires that are inserted into orthodontic brackets, which can be made from stainless steel or a more aesthetic ceramic material. The wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into desired positions. Being advanced in the field, Dr. Lazzara may also use Invisalign or other aligner trays that have been designed to align a patients? smile. As an orthodontist, Dr. Lazzara must recognize various characteristics of a malocclusion or dentofacial deformity, define the nature of the problem, including the etiology if possible, and design a treatment strategy based on the specific needs and desires of the patient.

  • Wiring a broken jaw

    Jaw fractures are generally healed within the first 6 weeks, but any broken bone will remain weakened and at risk of additional fractures for up to several months afterwards. It takes a long time for bone to heal completely. My answer is based on typical cases, for the specifics of her case and recovery, your sister should contact her oral surgeon for more specific information. In particular, she should seek the opinion of her oral surgeon as to when she can resume gymnastics or other rigorous activity that could put the healing jaw at risk or under stress. On other thing your sister should know to look for is bite changes once her wires are removed. It is not uncommon for a patient’s bite to feel different after a jaw fracture, and sometimes a dentist or orthodontist can help to restore the normal bite. Thanks for your question, Dr. John Lazzara READ MORE
