In brief: Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic surgery is a procedure that realigns your upper and lower jaws into an ideal configuration.
It is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon in a hospital setting. Braces are usually part of the treatment, and will act to place the teeth in their ideal positions in preparation for the orthognathic surgery. Please consult with your local oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
