What Problems Do Orthodontics And Surgery Best Correct?

There are many types of jaw development and alignment problems. Some are inherited, some are growth problems, and some are caused by an accident or other trauma. The most commonly corrected problems include:

  •  A protruding upper or lower jaw (one that sticks out too far)
  • An elongated face
  • Cleft palate (in young children)
  • Asymmetry (facial imbalance)
  • An unsightly display of gum tissue above the upper front teeth
  • A retruding chin (one that is too far back)
  • An inability to achieve lip contact when the lips are relaxed
