Jaw corrective surgery is also known as Orthognathic surgery. You will need this surgery when your jaw doesn’t meet correctly and/or your teeth don’t seem to fit with your jaws. Your teeth will straighten with orthodontics and jaw corrective surgery to reposition misaligned jaws. This will not only improve your facial appearance but also ensure that your teeth meet correctly and function properly.
Jaw growth is a gradual process and in some cases, the upper and lower jaws may grow at a different pace which alters your chewing functions, speech, long-term oral health and appearance. Injury to the jaw and birth defects also affects your jaw alignment. Orthodontics can correct bite problems when only teeth are concerned but when repositioning is necessary you may require jaw corrective surgery (Orthognathic surgery).
