Jaw operations: Orthognatic surgery/dental orthopedics (moving lower and/or upper jaw)

If your teeth are crooked, you will see an orthodontist. They move teeth to make a stable bite, i.e. teeth fit together properly. However, sometimes the jaws are also not in the right position underneath each other, preventing a stable bite. In such a case, a jaw correction is needed. Often, the lower teeth bite into the palate. This is painful and sometimes even leads to the loss of the upper teeth. Other reasons for a jaw correction are an oversized or small chin, a crooked jaw, a poorly closing mouth or a mouth that shows too many gums.
