What is it?
Orthognathic surgery consists of a surgical intervention that is responsible for correcting dentofacial deformities through bone movements, both maxillary and mandibular, in order to achieve an adequate bite, restore masticatory function and improve facial aesthetics.

Edge to edge bite:
A patient is considered to have an anterior edge-to-edge bite when the incisal edges of the upper anterior teeth contact the edges of the lower anterior teeth.
The edge-to-edge bite, in some cases, is so marked that it impedes contact between the posterior teeth (molars and premolars).La mordida borde a borde, en algunos casos, es tan marcada que impide el contacto entre los dientes posteriores (molares y premolares).
