Our Most frequently asked questions.
Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a surgical procedure that involves making precise changes to the jawbone to improve its alignment, shape, and size.
Jaw surgery is typically recommended for individuals who have misalignment of the jaw, problems with the bite or occlusion, or facial asymmetry. It may also be appropriate for those who have difficulty speaking or chewing due to jaw issues.
The specific technique used during jaw surgery will depend on the individual's needs and goals. In some cases, the surgery may involve cutting and repositioning the jawbone, while in other cases it may involve the use of screws or plates to hold the jaw in its new position.
The recovery time for jaw surgery can vary depending on the extent of the surgery and the individual's own healing process. In general, patients can expect to take several weeks off work or school to allow for proper healing.
