Jaw misalignments

Jaw misalignments (dysgnathias), which are mostly caused by growth impairment, can lead to incorrect bite and, therefore, to the impairment of the jaw musculature and mandibular joints. The harmony of the facial features may also suffer as a result. A correction involves collaboration by the orthodontist and the OMF surgeon. Surgery is performed with the patient under full anaesthesia. As the surgery is performed inside the mouth, no visible scars remain. The usual duration of inpatient stay is between three days and one week.
