Jaw Surgery (Orthognathic Surgery in coordination with Orthodontic Treatment)
To plan for this type of surgery involves input from a team of professionals. The team members include; The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Orthodontist and in some cases a speech and language therapist. The main goal in having Orthognathic surgery is to obtain a correct bite, aesthetic face and an enlarged airway. This surgery most often does not require cutting of the skin, instead, going through the inside of the mouth.
