When your upper and lower jaw are misaligned, it can make simple tasks like eating, speaking, breathing, and even sleeping incredibly difficult. When your jaw misalignment is mild, it can often be treated by your orthodontist with braces or other orthodontic treatment. When you have a more severe case of jaw misalignment, however, you will most likely require orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery in addition to possible orthodontics.
With corrective jaw surgery, oral surgeons can reposition your jaws to align properly, allowing you to regain your ability to perform simple tasks such as those mentioned above. A common bonus result of jaw surgery is corrected and/or improved appearance, which gives patients a new wave of confidence in themselves.
