My chin is extremely crooked, smile is crooked I dont like to smile because of this, I have alot of jaw pain, I have had ortho to repair cross bite and jaw pain. I am 40 yrs old. My doctor told me my jaw must have been broken when I was young which effected my growth plate and caused one side to grow longer than the other. How can this be repaired? I know my ortho talked about having my jaw broken but would this repair this problem and fix my smile?

I think that you need to see an oral surgeon or a plastic surgeon that specializes in jaw surgery. The orthodontist does not do this kind of work.
