Jaw Surgery

s-braces1.jpgThere are certain types of jaw growth that must be corrected with surgery in conjunction with orthodontics.  Patients may undergo orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, in order to correct facial and bone abnormalities in the jaws and teeth. These abnormalities can cause patients to experience difficulty with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery will not only correct these problems, but along with orthodontic treatment it can also improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.
