Jaw Surgery for Gummy Smile, Receding Profile, and Lip Incompetence? (photo)
Possible surgical procedures for the following?
- Bad lip incompetence at rest, closing lips causes visible chin strain
- Receding side profile
- Gummy smile.
- Lower third of face is 1.5 cms longer
- Jawline asymmetry. Not easy to see in photo because skin is soft but orthodontist pointed this out. My right jaw is longer than left & pushes chin off center. I get painful TMJ mostly on shorter left side. I did have braces for crossbite as teenager. Jaw issues weren't discussed at that time.
Orthognathic surgery is required
