Corrective Jaw Surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a surgical procedure to change the shape of the jaws. It is done to correct different orthodontic problems.
The orthognathic treatment plan is quite extensive and usually lasts about 12 to 24 months, and the corrective surgery is done at some interim point. During this time, you may need to wear braces that have to be adjusted regularly. Some teeth may also have to be removed before surgery to create space for movement of the remaining teeth.
