Jaw surgery, also referred to as orthognathic surgery, is a procedure done to correct irregularities of the jaw bones and realigns the jaws and teeth to improve their functionality. When the jaws and teeth do not properly meet, jaw surgery is a solution that improves functionality, and the overall structure and facial appearance. In addition, jaw surgery can help improve one’s speech, chewing ability, speech, breathing, sleep apnea, and gum health.
If jaw problems cannot be resolved with orthodontics alone, the jaw surgery may be the next best option. In many cases, patients may have braces prior to jaw surgery and during recovery once the jaw surgery has been done until healing and alignment are complete.
