More severe orthodontic problems will require orthognathic surgery. This process is commonly used to correct:
- Jaw bone abnormalities
- Extreme bad bites
More advanced problems that directly affect your bite or aesthetic aspects of your smile into adulthood will require surgical orthodontics to mend. For orthognathic surgery to be effective, the jaw must be finished growing. This normally will occur post high school, making this procedure common in adults.
