Surgical orthodontics (also known as Orthognathic surgery) may be necessary to align significant jaw irregularities. A jaw that is too large, too small, or asymmetric can adversely affect your chewing, speaking, breathing, sleeping and facial appearance. These jaw abnormalities can also lead to temporomandibular joint (TMJ or TMD) problems. Thus oversized, undersized or asymmetric jaws may need surgical intervention in addition to conventional orthodontics to fully correct the bite.
