Jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, is a corrective procedure that shifts the jaws and teeth for proper alignment. With corrective jaw surgery, patients can improve their lives by being able to speak, bite, and chew properly.
Why should I choose Jaw Surgery?
Sometimes, orthodontic treatment alone may not be enough to correct the position of your jaws. If this is the case, your dentist or orthodontist may recommend jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery). Jaw surgery can improve the position of your jaws and correct your bite. This improves your smile, but it also protects your oral health. Serious bite problems can raise your risk of premature tooth wear, TMJ/TMD, teeth grinding, and lots of other serious problems.
