Corrective (Orthognathic) Jaw Surgery
Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) is a surgery that entails moving jaws and/or teeth into a more balanced, functional and healthier position. At Greater Louisville Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, we recognize there are several reasons for this unequal development, like injury, abnormal growth or borth defects. Orthognathic means "straight jaws" and orthognathic surgery results in correction of these abnormalities. Technology has aided this concept with the advent of 3-D and virtual treatment planning.
