Orthognathic surgery (also called corrective jaw surgery) corrects abnormalities found in the facial bones, jaws and teeth. Why is orthognathic surgery necessary in some cases? For both functional and aesthetic reasons.

Difficulty chewing, sleeping, and talking may indicate a need for corrective jaw surgery. When employed alongside orthodontic treatment, orthognathic surgery can solve these problems. And along with improved function, comes a beautiful smile and enhanced facial profile.
