Mesial bite, 23 year-old woman

A 23 year-old lady was worried about protruding lower jaw and malocclusion. Facial and occlusal investigation was performed, and mesial malocclusion was diagnosed, accompanied by big lower jaw and big chin dimensions. The orthodontic setup was finished after 1,5 years and the patient went for the surgery.

Double jaw osteotomy and reduction genioplasty was performed. The patient now can benefit from improved facial balance as well as improved chewing function due to correct occlusion.
