The Protruding chin refers to the chin condition when the lower jaw is bigger or sticks out farther than the upper jaw. In most cases, the protruding chin occurs with malocclusion (poor bite) which can lead to discomfort when chewing or biting, digestive disorders and others. Moreover, patients may psychologically suffer from appearance related problems caused by the protruding chin.
Through a thorough medical examination of the facial bone, Banobagi gets a detail view of patients’ facial bone conditions and their dental occlusion. When it is found that the patient has prognathism, the protruding chin correction surgery plan should be devised along with the orthodontic treatment plan.
When the patient has decided to receive two-jaw surgery, the patient should receive the orthodontic treatment for a few weeks or a few months as a preparatory procedure.
Since the orthodontic treatment for the two-jaw surgery is completely different from the general orthodontic treatment, the patient should have a proper understanding about the treatment to reduce any confusion.
Normally, it takes around 3 to 5 hours for two-jaw surgery, depending on whether the surgery is done only on one jaw or two jaws, and it requires 1 to 3 days for the hospitalization.
After the surgery, a radiograph will be taken again to see an outcome of the surgery. Also, an orthodontist will give a thorough medical examination to ensure whether the teeth are aligned in the intended position. The orthodontic treatment after surgery may take a few weeks or months.
