Orthognathic (Corrective Jaw) Surgery
Corrective jaw, or orthognathic, surgery is performed to correct a wide range of minor and major skeletal and dental irregularities, including the misalignment of jaws and teeth. The main goal of corrective jaw surgery is to improve your bite and function, but some patients also experience enhancements to their appearance and speech.
