Which type of doctor should I visit to treat my jaw problem? Does braces help with uneven jaw? (photos)

My left lower jaw is bigger than my right, and my lower jaw is shifted to the left. I've been considering braces, but I wonder if braces would help my case since my left jaw is bigger than my right. Please tell me if braces would help, or is there anything else that I should do? Which type of doctor should I visit? or should I visit a cosmetic aesthetician instead? Please help! Thank you so much!

Consider the DNA Appliance to orthopedically correct your jaws and appearance

Consider Epigenetic Orthodontics with the DNA Appliance as the best approach to correcting your issues without surgical intervention.
