10 Days Post-Op Openbite Jaw Surgery Smile is Now Drooping on One Side, Permanent?
My son 15yrs of age had openbite jaw reconstructive surgery 10days ago. Everything seemed fine just the normal swelling but on the 11th day we noticed his smile has dropped on his left side. this is disturbing for me as a parent. and to make if worse he is very shy. Will this stil change - as there was nothing different besides the swelling and numbness which is acceptable. please help
