Orthodontic surgery: Correcting jaw and bite misalignments

Orthodontic surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a type of corrective jaw surgery that is performed to correct dental and skeletal irregularities of the jaw and face. This surgery is typically performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon in conjunction with an orthodontist. Orthodontic surgery may be recommended for individuals who have problems with their bite, teeth alignment, or facial asymmetry that cannot be corrected with traditional orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners. Some common reasons for orthodontic surgery include correcting overbites, underbites, cross bites, open bites, and facial asymmetry.
