Orthognathic Surgery or Jaw Deformity Surgery
Patients, which suffer deformities during their development, are susceptible to treatment, generally combining orthodontics and surgery, to provide their faces with the harmony that it did not have.
The main deformities appear because of excess or defect in the growth of the superior maxillary, of the jaw or both.
- Dolicofacial (long faces) or brachiofacial patterns
- Prognathism (large jaw, with excessive projection of the chin) or retrognathism (small jaws, bird-face)
- Flat faces
- Gummy smiles (excessive amount of gums seen in the smile)
They can be corrected with low aggression surgeries.
