Orthognathic surgery refers to corrective jaw surgery that fixes and treats facial bone abnormalities, particularly the teeth and the jaw. These issues can often cause extreme difficulty with daily activities such as sleeping, talking and chewing. Orthognathic surgery works alongside orthodontic treatment in order to correct these routine problems. The overall appearance of the facial profile is often enhanced greatly once the procedure is complete.

Post-surgical recovery time is minimized with these advances in technology, equipment and procedures. Patients are able to return to their normal routines fairly quickly after their surgery.
If orthodontic treatment alone is able to correct the issue, Orthognathic surgery may not be necessary. Many times this is the case due to the latest advancements in orthodontics.
