The surgery is typically performed by a dentist or a plastic surgeon, but there are a few other options, too.
The first is a lateral reconstruction, which is where the jawbone is fused to the upper part of the head.
The procedure usually involves the removal of the cartilage covering the skull, but the surgeon can also use a titanium plate to hold the jaw in place.
The second option is a complete jaw replacement.
The surgeon will also use titanium plates and implants to fill the gaps in the jaw.
The final option is to remove the jaw altogether, but most surgeons do this with a lateral jaw.
