By the age of 18, the average adult has 32 teeth; 16 teeth on the top and 16 teeth on the bottom.

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Leslie Fish, Chandler, AZ, practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from corrective jaw surgery to wisdom tooth removal.

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