How do you know if you need jaw surgery?
Orthognathic surgery or known simply as jaw surgery is undertaken to correct severe jaw discrepancies and involves a combination of surgery and treatment. It can greatly improve oral function, facial and dental appearance and the patient’s quality of life.
Optimal treatment is best provided by a team approach. A combined treatment plan is created by the maxillofacial surgeon and orthodontist. Braces are usually worn for a period of time to ensure that the teeth will be properly positioned after surgery. The operation involves a controlled section of the jaw and movement into the pre-planned position. Post-surgical orthodontics usually takes less than six months to achieve the best possible outcome.
