Orthognathic surgery is used to correct jaw position.
Orthognathic surgery is an adjustments to the alignment of the jaw in relation to the skull. Orthognathic surgery is usually performed in combination with some level of orthodontic treatment. This type of surgery is recommended to treat conditions such as apertognathia (open bite), prognathic mandible (under bite), and others. Once you are fully sedated, our team will surgically correct your alignment by moving all affected bone structure into the ideal position.
