OGS, Orthognathic Surgery, Jaw Surgery
(All the above are names for the same procedure)
OGS (Orthognathic Surgery or jaw surgery) is the required treatment sequence for people that have upper to lower jaw bone irregularities as well as tooth alignment problems. OGS is a combination treatment of orthodontics and surgery; the braces are necessary to align the teeth and to provide anchors for stabilization of the jaw as healing progresses. OGS corrects facial profile anomalies as well as the bite. More OGS information is available on the OGS page of this web site.
