Corrective Jaw surgery
Surgical Orthodontic Treatment (also called orthognathic surgery) may be recommended for skeletal orthodontic issues, where the misalignment of the bite is not caused by the teeth but by the position of the jaws themselves. In that case, the problem is too severe to be corrected by orthodontics alone.
Our orthodontists team up with an oral surgeon where surgery is implicated braces to treat the problem.
