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

The university environment also offers the widest range of possible specialties to help evaluate your problems.

I would seek out their council. ...Read more
