Jaw Surgery

Corrective jaw surgery may become necessary when a patient’s jaws don’t fit with their natural teeth and repositioning is needed to improve function and/or appearance. These issues may exist as birth defects or they can develop later in life due to genetic or environmental circumstances.

Corrective jaw surgery may be used to improve the following:
  • Protruding jaw
  • Problems with chewing or biting properly
  • Problems with swallowing properly
  • Facial Injury
  • An inability to speak clearly
  • An open bite
  • Problems with breathing properly
