Surgical Orthodontics

Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) involves correcting the jaw’s position. This type of surgery, if required, is performed by a very skilled and experienced Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon by referral.

Signs and symptoms this type of surgery may be required include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Difficulty speaking clearly
  • Receding chin or protruding jaw
  • Challenges with chewing or biting food
  • Facial injury or birth defects
  • An open bite
  • Cannot bring lips together
  • Snoring or sleep apnoea

Why is Early Treatment Important?

Corrective jaw surgery will address various skeletal and functional dental problems when required. It will make the teeth and jaw more functional and manage the patient’s complaints.
