Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic Surgery (Jaw Repositioning)

Orthognathic surgery is surgery to reposition the upper or lower jaw. It is used to correct overbites, underbites, and other conditions. This type of surgery usually requires working with an orthodontist. The orthodontist aligns your teeth to fit to your new, post-surgery bite.

These surgeries are typically done in the hospital operating room in which case there is an additional $280 OR fee. Rounding on a patient in the hospital is $200 per day. Anesthesia is billed by the anesthesiologist who generally accepts your medical insurance (if your insurance considers this a covered procedure). The hospital will also have fees that may be covered by your medical insurance.
