 Orthognathic surgery refers to a group of corrective bone operations that involve movement of the jawbones completely or in parts [1]. Orthognathic surgery is indicated when there are severe dentofacial deformities that cannot be managed by orthodontic treatment alone, especially in adulthood, when the natural growth forces have ceased [2]. Dentofacial deformities are described as deformities that affect primarily the jaws and dentition. The limitation can reach to one jaw or can go beyond that leading to multiple craniofacial indications which can be corrected by orthognathic surgery.
