Not every malocclusion case can be dealt with braces or aligners. In some cases, Orthodontists recommend for Orthognathic surgery.
What is Orthognathic surgery?
In Latin, ‘Ortho’ means straighten and ‘Gnathia’ means jaw. Orthognathic surgery deals with the correction of imbalances between the upper and lower jaw.
Through Orthognathic surgery, it is possible to improve the bite of teeth as well as facial aesthetics.
In following cases, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons at aRdent Dental Care recommend to undergo Orthognathic surgery:
