Jaw surgery involves the surgical realignment or modification of the jawbone to correct irregularities like overbite or underbite and restore balance to the facial structure. This transformative procedure addresses a variety of issues, including misaligned jaws, overbite or underbite, facial asymmetry, and obstructive sleep apnea, among others. 

During the procedure, the surgeon repositions the jawbone to achieve proper alignment, improving overall functionality and facial harmony. 

Orthodontic jaw surgery combines orthodontic treatment with surgical intervention. We use this approach with severe situations that cannot be dealt with any other treatment.

Jaw surgery is a complex and highly specialized procedure that requires careful planning, collaboration within the team, and the use of advanced technology. If you believe you may benefit from jaw surgery, it is essential to schedule a consultation with us to evaluate your specific needs.
