Jaw deformities are common conditions that affect the upper or lower jaws. It can be corrected by a jaw reshaping surgery. Here the jaws may grow too much or too little resulting in a condition called malocclusion (imperfect positioning of teeth when the jaws are closed). These deformities may be due to trauma or birth defects like cleft lip or cleft palate. Correction of jaw deformities helps you to get a new look.

Types of Jaw Deformities

1. Malocclusion: Imperfect positioning of teeth when the jaws are closed.

2. Microgenia: Unusually small or deformed chin

3. Macrogenia: Enlarged chin

4. Macrognathia: Abnormally large jaw

5. Short Maxilla: Upper jaw is shorter than normal

6. Long Maxilla: Upper jaw is longer than normal

7. Mandible prognathism: Protruding lower jaws

Jaw deformities can be diagnosed by a physical examination. For proper clarification of the deformities X-ray, CT scan or MRI scans are also advised.
