What is Orthognathic Surgery?

Orthognathic Surgery is jaw surgery or surgery to correct the function of the jaw. It is performed to help patients bite correctly, to correct underbites or overbites, speak with clarity and, sometimes, to help them breathe more easily. The procedure can take up to two to four hours.

Orthognathic Surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and patients should not feel pain during the procedure.

Patients take one to four weeks to recover from jaw surgery for a single jaw. They may take six to eight weeks to recover from double jaw surgery. Recovery depends on each individual patient. Patients should not travel by air until cleared to do so by their surgeon.

What post-operative care is required after Orthognathic Surgery?

Patients should sleep on their backs with their head elevated for at least a week. They should try to talk and exercise their jaw. They should take short walks. They should not do strenuous exercises or lift heavy objects for at least two months after surgery. They can place hot or cold packs on the swollen area to bring down any swelling.  They should take all the prescribed medications correctly.

The clinic was amazing when it comes to service, efficiency and appearanceLerato, South Africa, 26 May 17

I was fortunate enough to have access to quality staff and practitioners that went out of their way to make the experience of going to see a dentist more comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the staff was and how dedicated they were at making the experience of wisdom tooth extraction less intimidating. The clinic was amazing when it comes to service, efficiency, and appearance. The only problem I had was that the clinic was very expensive. Their prices were quite high including a consultation that went over R800.00
