What Is Orthognathic Surgery And Who Needs It? Here's What You Should Know

One of the main reasons people seek orthodontic or braces treatment is to improve their bite. For some, the cause of their bite problems lies beneath their teeth, in the jaw bones.

The word “orthognathic” means “pertaining to the normal relationship of the jaws”.

When there is disharmony in the way the jaws sit with respect to each other, orthognathic surgery is advised to achieve normal alignment of the jaws.

Dr Priscilla Lu, an Associate Consultant Orthodontist, from National Dental Centre Singapore explains. 

DxD is proud to partner with National Dental to raise awareness about the importance of good oral health. To learn more about oral health and healthcare, head down to the National Dental Centre's public forum on dental care on 23 March 2019 to find out more.
