Maxillomandibular Advancement

Maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) is a surgical procedure in which your upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible) are moved forward to correct a facial deformity or sleep disorder such as sleep apnea.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, rated among the best in the Philadelphia region according to Philadelphia magazine, can explain this procedure to you and provide you with proper after-care recommendations.

Our oral surgeons will work with the experienced team of the Jefferson Sleep Disorder Center as well as otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat physicians), should maxillomandibular advancement be needed to treat your sleep disorder.
