I have a receded chin (retrognathism) with TJM (ATM) which causes my both jaws to click when i eat and to lock sometimes. Also i have an augmented overjet and overbite and my teeth are all on top of each other.Im using braces for now and will do surgery. I also have a facial assymetry where my left side of the face looks fuller or rounder than the right side, also it's affecting my eyes causing a ptosis of the right side. Will the jaw surgery fix the assymetric face?
Can Jaw Surgery (Orthognathic) Improve Facial Assymetry?
