Corrective Jaw Surgery
Corrective Jaw Surgery or Orthognathic Surgery is a well-established surgical treatment for the correction of skeletal facial and jaw deformities. This surgery is indicated when there is an abnormal growth of the upper and lower jaws, leading to a mismatch of the jaws and an improper, deranged bite or a malocclusion. This malocclusion cannot be corrected by orthodontic therapy or braces alone. With the advent of 3D Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP), together with improvements in surgical techniques, corrective jaw surgery is becoming safer, and is performed more precise and efficiently than ever before. VSP allows surgical planning and patient outcomes to be visualised in 3D, leading to better surgical outcomes and higher patient satisfaction. At AOMF Surgery, our specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr Andrew Ow, is well-experienced in managing skeletal facial and jaw deformities.
