Prognathism is a facial condition in which the chin is projected excessively forward, resulting in an unbalanced facial profile.
Prognathism can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Genetic inheritance
- Jaw trauma
- Congenital deformities
- Advanced age
Prognathism can cause a number of aesthetic and functional problems, such as:
- Unbalanced facial appearance
- Difficulty in chewing
- Speech difficulty
- Sleeping difficulty
- Jaw pain
- Muscle tensions
- Psychological problems
Treatment for prognathism varies depending on the severity of the condition. In mild cases, the use of orthodontic appliances may be sufficient. In more severe cases, surgery may be needed to reposition the jaw.
At Living Clinic, we use orthognathic surgery to correct prognathism, realigning the jaw and creating improved facial balance.
