Orthognathic surgery, that is, the surgical correction of the jaws, is needed when the jaw teeth are not in good contact with one another. This is often corrected by orthodontic treatment. However, if there is skeletal jaw malformation then a combination of orthodontic and surgical treatment is needed.
WHAT IS THE IMPACTED TOOTH?
Impacted tooth is a tooth that has simply “stuck” to the jaws and has not erupted in the mouth. Often patients have problems with closed third molars. These teeth can stick to the back of the jaws and cause painful inflammation and many other problems (see impacted third molars). Because there is no functional need to hold the wisdom tooth, when they cause a problem, we surgically remove them.
