Sometimes issues related to a patient’s jaws and teeth are so severe that jaw surgery is required to correct them. This might seem daunting at first, but rest assured that if you do require jaw surgery, at My Orthodontist you will be in the hands of caring, expert orthodontists who will do everything in their power to give you the best quality treatment and results.
What is Orthognathic Surgery?
Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Oftentimes these abnormalities result in difficulties with chewing, talking, sleeping, and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and—in conjunction with orthodontic treatment such as braces or Invisalign—improves the overall appearance of your facial profile.
