Orthognathic surgery is needed when the jaws don't meet correctly and/or teeth don't seem to fit with the jaws. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and corrective jaw surgery repositions a misaligned jaw.


This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly. Dr. Swanson is the only specialty board certified doctor who can perform this procedure in Effingham County.
