Jaw / Orthognathic Surgery

What is orthognathic surgery?

Orthognathic surgery is an important area of our practice in which abnormal growth patterns of the jaws lead to functional malocclusions (bite abnormalities) that are not optimally corrected by orthodontic treatment alone. Working in cooperation with your orthodontist we are able to restore chewing function as well as enhance facial appearance using procedures performed entirely inside the oral cavity. Various forms of cosmetic surgery can be combined with orthognathic surgery to improve the appearance of the nose, cheekbones, chin and eyes.
