Orthognathic surgery is a surgical procedure that is performed to correct functional issues with breathing, chewing, and/or speaking due to a dental or skeletal irregularity. Also known as corrective jaw surgery, orthognathic surgery can have a significant impact on your quality of life.
Some of the conditions that may cause you to be referred for orthognathic surgery include:
- Difficulty biting or chewing
- Difficulty swallowing
- Chronic mouth breathing
- Protruding jaw
- Open bite
- Receding chin and lower jaw
- Facial injury
- Birth defect
- Inability to close lips together
- Excessively worn teeth
Depending on the specific issue, your treatment may require a combined set of procedures by your dentist and/or orthodontist in addition to the surgery performed by Dr. Brandon Morgan.
