Biological Jaw Surgery

Orthognathic Surgery is a medical procedure that aims to correct a variety of minor and major skeletal and dental irregularities. The term “Orthognathic” originates from the Greek words “orthos,” meaning straighten, and “gnathic,” meaning pertaining to the jaw. Thus, the term Orthognathic signifies the correction of jaw alignment.

This surgical intervention is performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons to address a broad range of skeletal and dental issues, such as misaligned jaws and teeth. The primary goal of Orthognathic Surgery is to improve functions like chewing, speaking, and breathing. Although the surgery can significantly enhance a patient’s appearance, its main purpose is to correct functional problems.

Orthognathic surgery involves a biological treatment approach that incorporates orthodontic treatment with surgical repositioning of the maxilla and mandible. By doing so, it aims to establish a stable and functional balance between the teeth, jaws, and facial structures.

Consequently, this procedure encompasses a combination of diagnosis, treatment planning, and implementation to rectify musculoskeletal, dento-osseous, and soft tissue deformities of the jaws and related structures.
