With Facial and Jaw Assymmetry can be Corrected with Surgery
Here is what you should do. See a qualified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for a CT scan for an objective view and specific measurements. We need to know if there are bone or soft tissue problems and if there is any pathology that may need to be treated first. Next after a real diagnosis has been made, your will be given options for treatment. Anything is possible for a craniofacial surgeon, the important thing is managing your expectations.
