Questions About Oral Surgery
Answers from Oral Surgeon Dr. Won
They are referring to orthognathic jaw surgery. Chances are he has skeletal misalignment of jaw and teeth. Moving teeth alone won’t correct the overall issues. Long term he will have better result by addressing both skeletal and dental issues. So yes. I do recommend jaw surgery.
It is not completely benign surgery. However consolidation rates are low. Compromising integrity of jaw could be an complication but highly unlikely.
