In most cases, problems with the bite, facial asymmetries or misalignment of the teeth can be corrected by non-invasive means, using today's advanced methods of dental and orthodontic treatment.
Sometimes, however, skeletal and dentalities aren't so easy to solve, even with the most up-to-date non-surgical techniques. That's when corrective jaw surgery (also called orthognathic surgery) may be recommended.
Conditions that can be successfully treated with corrective orthognathic surgery include the following:
Open bite, protruding jaw or receding chin
Congenital defects such as a cleft palate
Malocclusions (bite problems) resulting from underbites or severe overbites
Obstructive Sleep Apnea, when more conservative methods fail
Difficulty swallowing, chewing, or biting food
Chronic jaw or jaw joint (TMJ) pain and headache
Unbalanced facial appearance from the front or side
Inability to make the lips meet without straining
Chronic mouth breathing and dry mouth
