Orthognathic surgery

Orthognathic Surgery treats improper bite and incorrectly positioned jaws. Jaw growth is a slow and gradual process. This can affect chewing function, speech, long-term oral health, and appearance. Injury to the jaw and birth defects can also affect jaw alignment.

While orthodontics alone can correct many “bite” problems if only the teeth are involved, Orthognathic Surgery may be required if jaws are involved or are not related properly.
