Everything you need
to know about orthognathic surgery
Orthognatic surgery is needed to correct misaligned jaws. When the upper and lower jaws do not align properly, the patient’s teeth also do not align and the patient may have difficulty chewing.
Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and jaws are aligned surgically. Not only does this restore good function, but it also often improves facial aesthetics and appearances.
People who have an improper bite and misaligned jaws can benefit from corrective jaw surgery.
