ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY

Orthognathic surgery  is surgery to correct conditions of the jaw and face related to structure, growth, sleep apnoea, TMJ disorders, malocclusion problems owing to skeletal disharmonies, or other orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces. Orthognathic surgery can also be referred to as corrective jaw surgery.

These surgeries are mainly indicated in cases where there is some form of jaw deformity present in any of the plane vertical, horizontal and transverse. There may be receeding chin, protruding jaws, inability to make the lips meet without straining, open bite (space between the upper and lower teeth when the mouth is closed). The facial deformity is also very commonly seen in patients suffering from diseases related to temporomandibular joint wherein the growth may not be equal on both sides of the face.
   
The surgery might involve one jaw or the two jaws during the same procedure. It is done under general anaesthesia and usually in most cases done intraorally and thereby does not produce any extraoral scar.
