Orthognatic Surgery: Treating Your Jaw Problems

Braces can generally treat all of your tooth/jaw issues, but if you have severe jaw problems you may require orthognathic (jaw) surgery. Learn the facts about orthognathic surgery from your Richmond and Port Coquitlam orthodontist, HGS Ortho.

If your upper and lower jaws don’t overlap properly, you may have problems chewing. speaking, or resting well at night. These kind of problems are common in people with underbites, overbites, bites that are open or crossbites. The Port Coquiltam and Richmond orthodontic team at HGS Ortho can shift your jaw into the proper position through a combination of orthognathic surgery and orthodontic treatment.

Orthognathic surgery is ideal for individuals who have any problems with their bite. Under bites and prominent lower jaws can be fixed with surgery to give you a more appealing smile.

Contact HGS Ortho today if you have any questions about orthognathic surgery or if you would like to book an appointment.
