Corrective Solutions for Jaw Irregularities

Orthognathic surgery is a surgical procedure that is performed to correct functional issues with breathing, chewing, and/or speaking due to a dental or skeletal irregularity. Also known as corrective jaw surgery, orthognathic surgery can have a significant impact on your quality of life. Some of the conditions that may cause you to be referred for orthognathic surgery include:

  • Difficulty biting or chewing
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Chronic mouth breathing
  • Protruding jaw
  • Open bite
  • Receding chin and lower jaw
  • Racial injury
  • Birth defect
  • Inability to close lips together
  • Excessively worn teeth

Depending on the specific issue, your treatment may require a combined set of procedures by your dentist and/or orthodontist as well as the surgery performed by our doctor.
