Chin implant versus jaw surgery
Lower jaw surgery is performed as an inpatient procedure in the hospital and involves osteotomies through the jaw, and then set forward when there is a dentition problem as well as a cosmetic problem. Best to seek out an oral surgeon experienced in this procedure for best results
