Could not wearing retainer after braces cause asymmetry and incorrect bone growth?
I have an asymmetrical face. My right jaw and cheekbone are less developed. My jaw is also slightly misaligned. I had 4 extractions and a palat expander and never wore my retainer afterwards at age 14. When I look at my bottom row teeth, the right teeth turn inward more. Is my face asymmetrical because of a collapse of some sort? Can orthodontics still balance my face and fix my crooked jaw? I'd hate to think I could have had a more balanced face.
