Chin Surgery And Chin Implants

If we divide the under-chin area into two parts, the purpose of this article becomes clearer. If you have a problem with lower and upper chin parts not aligning and teeth not matching, then you might have an orthognathic problem. A person who has an orthognathic back chin, most of the time that means chin tip is also drawn back. Some people have drawn back chin tips even though they don’t have an orthognathic problem.

What is The Criteria For Determining a Drawn Back Chin?

Although there are many different criterias, you can simply measure it by measuring the tip of your lower lip and chin tip and seeing if it is ahead of your lip or not. With patients who have an orthognathic problem, an orthodontist should be consulted for a collaboration on the chin surgery. Don’t think of this only as teeth braces. This is fairly simple in teenage years.

In these years, teeth roots haven’t completed latching on the mandibula and the treatment can be hidden with the development process. Whether there is orthognathic treatment or not, most of the patients who have completed their teenage years might not want to deal with the teeth realignment process, only want their chin to be more visible. Alas, most patients learn that they have this problem from us, they are not even aware of it.

Orthognathic treatment usually takes 1-3 years to complete. Whether a patient accepts this treatment or not, although there are some exceptions, chin can be made more characteristic with implants. Rhinoplasty, or fat injections on cheeks and forehead can improve the perception of this procedure.

Still, when considering chin implants, orthognathic problems shouldn’t be ignored and an orthodontist must be consulted.

Chin implant can be implanted either inside the mouth or under the chin. It has a fairly short operation duration. With the added benefit of its effects, other operations get richer results.

Chin implants can be combined with a number of facial surgeries. For more information about those, visit:
