How Can I Correct My Jaw Asymmetry After Jaw Angle Implant Removal?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi about a year ago I had jaw angle implant surgery and around 3 months ago removed them due to not liking the look of them. It seems like the corner of my jaw is missing on 1 side now and when i bite my jaw angle appears higher now, i was wondering if its possible to correct this, its on my left side, I’m 21 year old male, and healthy.
A: What you undoubtably have is masseteric muscle dehiscence for which there are two treatment approaches, muscle repositioning and onlay contouring, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
