Asymmetrical/uneven smile and face. How do you fix it? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 1
Assymetrical look is orthopedic not orthodontic in nature
I would first want to know if you have headache, TMJ , sinus, neck or ear pain before going into great detail.
It appears that you have a narrow maxilla and a long face, The assymetry may be caused by positionig of the mandible.
I would consider the DNA Appliance that utilizes epigenetic orthopedics/orthodontics to correct the jaws. If there is also pain then I would start with a diagnostic neuromuscular orthotic.
