Protrusion of the front teeth

User Level:
Posted by: summerbreeze  (10 years ago)
Hi there!

I wore braces for 2 years for my overbite and severe rotation of my canines. My bite were corrected as well as the position of my canines but my problem is my protruding front teeth. The dentist said, this is due to the skeletal structure of my face. A surgery can be done to adjust my jaw to the ideal form. Is there any alternative for this? The treatment that was suggested by the dentist seems complicated. I was wondering if there are any other treatments to correct this.

Thank you for your time!

If the jaw position is involved, you truly need orthognathic surgery--surgery of the jaws. Orthodontic treatment can only move the teeth.

Have orthognathic surgery done. My sister had this last year to correct her protruded maxilla and the result was great. The main objective of orthognathic surgery is to correct the facial structure and jaws problem. There are softwares used to predict how the patient look like after the surgery.
