In brief: General anesthesia

It is required to have general anesthesia for these procedures.
Your anesthesiologist should be familiar with these cases, hence it takes some special skills.

In brief: General anesthesia

Jaw alignment surgery, or orthognathic surgery, is routinely performed under general anesthesia.
Some minor jaw adjustment procedures, such as a genioplasty (chin advancement), chin implant or jaw implant, can be done under intravenous sedation without requiring full-blown general anesthesia. However, most jaw procedures require general anesthesia performed by an anesthesiologist or rn anesthetist.
