Jaw surgery is also known as orthognathic surgery. This procedure realigns the jaws, and teeth, to correct irregularities. Jaw corrections will improve facial appearance. Combined orthodontics, and orthognathic surgery typically takes place after growth stops, usually between 14-16 for females and ages 17-21 for males.
Orthognathic surgery may be a corrective option for jaw concerns that can’t be resolved with orthodontics alone. In most cases, you might have braces on your teeth before, and after the surgery until your alignment is complete. Our great doctors will work with your Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon to customize a treatment plan for you.
If you have additional questions about jaw surgery, schedule a complimentary consultation to answer your concerns.
