What is Orthognathic Surgery?
Orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, is a combined orthodontic (braces) and surgical treatment approach for the correction of dental, jaw and facial deformities.
Why is Orthognathic Surgery Necessary?
The upper and lower jaws are bases upon which teeth and soft tissues are aligned. Braces can only correct dental abnormalities like crooked teeth and poor bites (malocclusion). However, disharmonies of jaw size or position can only be corrected surgically to achieve a good overall outcome.
