, or jaw surgery as it is more commonly referred to, is a surgical procedure to realign the jaw for the purposes of aesthetic improvement, and to correct teeth misalignment. For individuals with a severe under bite or overbite, this may be a procedure to correct the issue. Orthognathic surgery may also be used to correct injuries to the jaw, or birth defects. Incorrect jaw alignment can cause many issues for an individual over their lifetime, such as chewing, speech, and oral health.
