Jaw surgery, also referred to as “orthognathic surgery,” is a surgical procedure that is done for patients who are experiencing problems with their bite, recurring jaw pain, TMJ/TMD, or trauma that has impacted the function of the mouth. This includes corrective jaw surgery to properly balance the jaw, improving function and the patient’s facial appearance. By addressing irregularities in the bone of the jaw, patients can also improve the alignment of the jaw and teeth while reducing the need for orthodontics or bite guards. Jaw surgery may also be performed due to facial trauma, and this type of surgery is referred to as jaw reconstruction.
