Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, corrects jaw misalignment to alleviate symptoms and create balance.

When the teeth and jaws are misaligned, a condition called malocclusion, and cannot be corrected with orthodontics alone, an orthodontist may recommend visiting a surgeon. This surgery can move the jaws into a more favorable position to eliminate the discrepancy between the upper and lower jaws. Once the jaws have been moved to a proper position, an orthodontist can align teeth into their optimal position.

You may be referred to a jaw surgeon before or during orthodontic treatment, or after braces are removed. Your surgeon will review the advantages and disadvantages of both a surgical and nonsurgical approach so that you can make the right decision for you.

This treatment helps to straighten or realign the upper and lower jaws, correcting skeletal deformities such as receded or protruding jaws, an open bite, or a crossbite. Depending on the specific reason for surgery, the jaw may be lengthened or shortened, moved forward or backward, or up or down, resulting in a more aligned bite and improved facial appearance.

While most jaw surgeries are performed for corrective and functional reasons, it’s important to choose a surgeon who is experienced in facial aesthetics, as adjusting the jaw makes a significant impact on your appearance.
