About this procedure

Orthognathic surgery refers to the surgical repositioning of the maxilla, mandible, and the dentoalveolar segments to achieve facial and occlusal balance and to correct functional and aesthetic problems that are due to underlying skeletal deformities. It has become a standard procedure in cranio-maxillofacial surgery during the past 25 years for the treatment of severe bite problems and correction of dentofacial abnormalities, such as cleft lip and palate, Down’s syndrome, Crouzon and Pierre-Robin syndromes and hemifacial microsomia.
