ORTHODONTIC JAW SURGERY
Orthognathic surgery is also known as corrective jaw surgery. When a person’s jaw problems are primarily due to a major discrepancy in the underlying bones, orthognathic surgery may be recommended to correct the deformity. The surgery is to correct conditions of the jaw and face related to structure, growth, sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, malocclusion problems owing to skeletal disharmonies, or other orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces.
