Sometimes orthodontic treatment alone is unable to achieve the best aesthetic and functional result. In such cases, assistance of an oral maxillofacial surgeon to move the jaws to assist orthodontic treatment may be required.
What is orthognathic surgery?
Orthognathic surgery (jaw surgery) is performed to correct abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. These abnormalities can cause difficulties associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities.
Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems in conjunction with orthodontic treatment to improve the overall appearance of the facial profile and is performed by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
