(corrective jaw surgery)
Orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the upper and lower jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.
Orthognathic surgery may not be necessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. We will determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
