Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery) is used to cure anomalies of the face bones, especially the jaws and teeth. Often, these irregularities result in trouble eating, speaking, sleeping, and doing other ordinary tasks. Orthognathic surgery corrects these issues and, when combined with orthodontic therapy, improves the facial profile’s overall look.

Orthognathic surgery’s total functional and cosmetic advantages will be shown using the most advanced digital imaging technologies. Treatment times, recuperation times, and surgical outcomes are all improved by computerized treatment planning. With the latest technology, your treatment is more predictable thanks to titanium plates and micro-screws. As a result of these improvements in surgical technology, techniques, and equipment, patients are able to return to their regular lives much faster following surgery.

If orthodontics can resolve the issue, then surgery may be unnecessary. This is now possible with the most recent advancements in orthodontics. Orthognathic surgery may or may not be appropriate for you, this will be determined during your consultation.
