ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY

Moving the hard and soft tissues of the face so as to enlarge the upper airway and allow increased airflow. Orthognathic surgery has revolutionised the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea in the last decade. It has been shown to be one of the most effective methods of resolving or vastly improving OSA such that the need for CPAP is either removed entirely or greatly diminished. It matches and surpasses in many respects CPAP as a treatment option in many patients. The fundamental principle is that by moving the skeletal components of the face we can increase the upper airway passageways in such a manner that the soft tissues of the tongue, nasal passageway mouth and oropharynx get splinted forward, widen and enlarge, reducing or eliminating OSA and the need for night time mandibular advancement splints and CPAP or reducing their use.
