Nutrition During Orthognathic Surgery Recovery

Orthognathic surgery, or jaw surgery, is an intricate procedure carried out on the jaw, in severe cases of dental misalignments. Jaw surgery can treat dental issues such as overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, too much or too little teeth showing and a receding or protruding jaw. It is an extremely successful operation that can both enhance facial harmony as well as correct irregularities of the jawbone, improving how the jaw operates and how the teeth work, as well as correct problems with speech, improve sleep quality, improve chewing, biting and much more.
