Which Way of Two Jaw Surgery Would Suit Me?
We can get a satisfying result after measuring exact framework and contour
through scientific medical examination.
Here are simple explanations of several surgery types
with before & after photos.
We call the indented chin as short chin.
This case comes from growth decline of lower chin
while the common reason is a weak development of the end of the chin.
Teeth correction and medical treatment is fairly simple for general short chin when there’s no problem on the set of teeth.
Lower chin nanocormia means the case of small chin with uneven teeth.
So for treatments,
there is a need of operation which moves whole lower chin toward
If you have a jutting chin,
you have to set a plan after grasping
whether your condition is chin hypertrophy or lower prognathism.
The set of teeth is even when lips closed
but just lower chin grow toward or downward that it looks like a jutting chin
in the case chin hypertrophy.
It can be simply revised by genioplasty.
Lower prognathism means the whole parts of lower jaw
including lower teeth are placed ahead.
This case has a malocclusion
and lower teeth are more protruded than upper teeth.
Protruded mouth makes nose and forehead look indented.
It’s can be revised by surgery or correction,
and you can get a good result by the operation
if you are in the case of protruded ulitis under nose.
Protruded gum and teeth are horizontally shifted backwards
after tooth extraction and elaborate excision of empty gum.
There is a facial imbalance caused by asymmetry of framework or soft tissue
if center line of the face is crooked.
Further problems as jutting chin, protruded mouth, arthralgia, or dysmasesis
is possible to be occurred.
The case of that gum shows too much when smiling, or have malocclusion,
front side of upper teeth and lower teeth don’t meet,
this can be revised by general two jaw surgery.
The length of face can be shortened
by additional genioplasty in some cases.
