Would an SMAS lift help with the TMJ I have? The right side of my face sags more that the left. I think this is caused by TMJ. I have managed to grind the teeth on the right side down through my gold crown's. I even have a mouth guard.
My understanding is that an SMAS Face Lift would tighten the jaw line muscles. I hit my chin on the right side in 1979 while mounting my horse. I did not notice till later that I have a bone the sticks out on bottom of chin. I have been asked if I have Bell's (something or other) because of the sagging jaw. Do you think it would be covered by insurance?
