Corrective Jaw Surgery Glen Waverley

Orthodontic jaw surgery, also referred to as orthognathic surgery, is a specialised procedure carried out in conjunction with orthodontic treatment. It aims to correct significant misalignments or abnormalities in the upper or lower jaw, together with related issues like bite problems and facial disharmony.

During orthognathic surgery, the orthodontist collaborates closing with the oral and maxillofacial surgeon to plan and perform the treatment. This precise surgical procedure is performed internally, preventing any visible scarring. Orthodontic jaw surgery can effectively address various concerns including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and facial asymmetry.

Although recovery from orthognathic surgery may involve temporary swelling, discomfort, and dietary adjustments, the outcome typically includes a markedly improved bite, facial harmony, and long-term oral health benefits.

This comprehensive approach offers significant enhancements to quality of life by improving both function and appearance.
