I've been wanting to get braces for years now to correct my teeth and overbite. I am also self-conscious about my recessed chin and was contemplating getting a chin implant. If I got a chin implant, then decided to get braces afterwards -- will it be possible that my chin may protrude after I remove my braces? Thanks!
Will Getting a Chin Implant Before Braces Result in a Protruding Chin?

Chin implant and orthodontic braces
It is acceptable to get the chin implant either before or after the braces. If your mandible is truly retrusive, your braces are not going to give your mandible further protrusion, however, the braces will straighten your teeth and overbite.
