I'm a 20 year old male and am unhappy with my profile, mostly as a result of my poorly aligned jaw. Pics are attached. This is what I would guess my issues are: - I have long face syndrome - My receding mandible is the result of the long face syndrome - My jaw is too narrow - Jaw misalignment has give me an asymmetrical face -My mouth protrudes. Maybe caused by my teeth slanting outwards? I'm hoping you guys can pinpoint what's wrong and what can be done, thanks.
