Is it true that when you get braces and you have a long face your jaws widen up so your face looks normal?

Braces: Your face does not change. The braces adjust the position of teeth so you can have better occlusion (close bite). Your jaw may change if an oral surgeon does jaw surgery (if you have retrognathia- jaw is back or - if you have prognathia: jaw is foward). Again the goal is good teeth occlusion. Braces does not change your face. ...Read more

Answer:: Answer: you present a complicated situation. With the accident you have had your normal anatomy changed and this may result in problems which are not normally expected. In the healing process some of the anatomy may have been compromised. Therefore many of the "usual" answers to your problemm may not apply. In complicated cases such as yours I would suggest you visit a university hospital/dental school for evaluation and help. The universities are up-to-date on all of the latest diagnostic procedures and treatment methods. The university environment also offers the widest range of possible specialties to help evaluate your problems. The university of pittsburgh school of dental medicine is one of the finest institutions of it's type in the world. They have an excellent department of head and neck specialists. I would seek out their council. ...Read more

Probably too long: Facial fat transfer to restore volume loss with aging that will work will leave you swollen for several weeks. Patients frequently go back to work after two, but can remain swollen for several depending on the volume, and health of the patient.
