Orthognathic surgery, or jaw straightening surgery, involves a spectrum of surgical procedures on the upper jaw, lower jaw and chin, to improve both form and function.
Orthognathic surgery may be undertaken to improve how the teeth fit together, to normalize or optimize facial proportions and/or to treat obstructive sleep apnea.
Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems, orthognathic surgery can be a life-changing procedure.
Good candidates for orthognathic surgery include:
Orthognathic surgery is not the only modality to correct bite discrepancies, facial imbalances or obstructive sleep apnea, and other less invasive procedures may be appropriate.
Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial anatomy thoroughly and will discuss what procedures might best remedy your concerns.
