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 & anesthesia is billed by the anesthesiologist who generally accepts your medical insurance (if your insurance considers this a covered procedure).
