Orthodontists are trained to assess facial balance and harmony.
In some cases, severe asymmetries or imbalances in their upper or lower jaw may not be aesthetically managed by influencing facial growth, or there may be inadequate growth available, and adjunctive surgery may be required.
Your orthodontist works together with a specialist Oral-Maxillofacial Surgeon to coordinate the teeth and jaws to fit together in harmony.
At Smile Hawthorn, we are always ready to answer queries you have about orthodontics.
