Reason of Application:
Deformations on the chin might be inborn, traumatic or developmental. Chin deformations cause teeth problems, closing of the jaws, functional problems, apparent problems and psychological problems.
Operation preparation and planning is made after the orthodontic treatment that was applied during infancy. The degree of the jaw bones and how much they will be mobilized (forward and backward) are planned. The surgery is done in the mouth under general anesthesia. The jaw bones can either be cut and the mobilization is given during the operation or the mobilization can be obtained by the help of staged screws. The patient might need to use chewing plates after the surgery. The patient is fed in a special way. The results of the chin surgery are encouraging. Jaw surgery results were excellent.
