Orthognathic surgery and what it can do for you

More commonly known as corrective jaw surgery, orthognathic surgery is used to correct minor and major skeletal and dental irregularities, including misaligned teeth and jaws. This procedure can only be carried out by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and at Sydney Dental Specialists we work with 3 oral surgeons to ensure our patients receive the best quality of care.

The benefit of this surgery is it can improve breathing, chewing and speaking.

When you visit Sydney Dental Specialists one of our prosthodontists will assess your oral health, take x-rays and determine the best way to proceed with treatment. Having a multi-disciplined team at our disposal allows us to provide you with the best care.

Case Study 1 - Bite Improvement


  • The teeth were worn, several had been extracted and the denture required unsightly clasps to hold it in place.
  • The remaining upper teeth were removed and replaced with implants and a fixed bridge (single procedure).
  • After healing, this was refined and strengthened to provide this beautiful fixed aesthetic implant supported tooth replacement.
  • This meant that the bite was rested and chewing was just like natural teeth.
