Orthognathic surgery is surgery to correct conditions of the jaw and face related to structure, growth, problems with skeletal disharmonies, tempromandibular joint (TMJ) disorders or other orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces. It is also used in treatment of congenital conditions like cleft palate. Orthognathic surgery is commonly referred to as corrective jaw surgery.
Orthognathic Surgery can contribute to the correction of multiple orofacial functions such as occlusion, nasal breathing, facial expression and smiling, snoring and sleep apnea.
Problems of jaw alignment can cause long-lasting discomfort, making mealtimes a trial and all too often resulting in a compromised quality of life. Moira Wong Orthodontics is dedicated to providing the best possible jaw surgery, helping people to overcome these difficulties, sometimes through a combination of orthodontics and surgery.
Dr Wong’s specialist training included a two-and-a-half year period largely dedicated to managing complicated adult cases. She understands how best to combine surgical jaw correction with orthodontics, to deliver results which are often quite literally life-changing.
Mr Piet Haers, one of the UK’s leading orthognathic surgeons, provides services to the practice.
