    More people choose orthognatic surgery to improve facial asymmetry

     

    Our unconscious bad habits can cause serious body deformations.

    Craning your neck, slouching while sitting, shifting your weight on one side of the body – habits we barely notice can cause such problems as facial asymmetry, scoliosis or pelvic deviation due to the constant use of one particular side of your body.

    Recently we have been having many patients who suffer from facial asymmetry caused by such habits as supporting the chin or chewing on one side. Facial asymmetry not only affects patient’s image, but also has a negative effect on masticatory and speech functions.

    Facial asymmetry is a condition when upper and lower jaws are not correctly positioned. If the jaw shifts from the central line, it is difficult to chew even thin noodles. Such malformation might exert negative influence on food digestion and overall physical and psychological health of the patient.

    Therefore, fixing facial asymmetry problem goes beyond the esthetical aspect and helps to improve patient’s holistic health condition.

    Unfortunately, it is difficult to improve facial asymmetry solely with orthodontic treatment.  Teeth can be brought into correct occlusion, but the jaw, which is the underlying cause of self-consciousness, will stay in the same position.

    Due to its fast and safe way to improve facial asymmetry, many people consider orthognatic surgery as optimal solution.

    Orthognatic surgery not only improves esthetic parameters of the face, but also its functions such as chewing and swallowing. It is important to look for a hospital and medical team with well-structured system. The experience, technique and esthetical taste of the specialist determine patient’s treatment success.

    When looking for a dentist for orthognatic surgery you should consider the experience of the specialists, good diagnostic system and understanding of the patient’s needs. Since orthognatic surgery also requires a well-planned preoperative and postoperative treatment due to its complexity, it is important to know whether a clinic offers good recovery program for patients.

    Dr. Hong Sunmin at New Face Dental Hospital says, “You can expect good results from the orthognatic surgery if there is a good collaborative system between the dental departments, since the surgery treats both dental beauty and function. Try to find a specialist who will do his best to find an optimal treatment plan for you”

    In addition, Dr. Hong gives advises, “The result of the surgery highly depends on the postoperative preparation so make sure to find a hospital with all the necessary equipment for thorough examination. (3D-CT, etc.)
