Asymmetrical Chin due to Orthodontic Braces: I got braces to correct a gap between my 2 front teeth 2 years ago.
The gap has since been closed but now I find that my chin has become asymmetrical towards the left side. I am very sure it was because of the braces because my orthodontist warned me about it, although it turned out to be more obvious than I expected.
Is there any way to bring my chin back to its original position while keeping my teeth corrected? ....Visitor from Singapore
Chin or Jaw Position Change after Braces
First Possibility - as your teeth were moved together, your lower jaw position shifted due to your bite. A dentist may be able to adjust your bite to allow your jaw to be better centered.
Second Possibility - Braces may have to be put on to move your teeth to reposition your jaw. Tomogrpahy is helpful to determine if your jaw is actually functioning in the socket or is moved a little out of the socket.
Do you have jaw problems as headaches, clicking etc.? This also is important to review completely before any further treatment.
