While orthognathic surgery is able to improve the appearance of your jawline and face, it can also increase your jaw function and relieve pain.

The Process of Getting Orthognathic Surgery

The orthognathic treatment process begins with computerized imaging in order to establish and exhibit the benefits that can be achieved through surgical correction. Surgery and treatment will be determined prior to the day of your surgery. Once your jaws are repositioned, very small screws and titanium plates are used to strengthen and stabilize it.

Thanks to the improvements made in the orthognathic field, patients are able to return to their daily activities fairly expeditiously following surgery.
