Jaw Deformity

Mandible Prognathism

mandibular prognathism

This malformation, which may be the most severe jaw problem, does not usually respond well to removable treatments including the chin strap. According to orthodontic textbooks, chin straps are not able to adequately prevent maxillary growth. These appliances only rotate the mandible down and back, causing the patient’s face to lengthen.

There is usually a genetic background in patients with mandibular growth. Jaw surgery called the mandibular set back is considered the definitive treatment for this malformation to retract the mandible. In this anomaly, the patient needs preoperative orthodontics, and then undergoes surgery, and the orthodontic treatment continues after the operation.
