I had orthognathic surgery to correct my open bite and extended lower jaw several years ago. I still have some loss of feeling in my chin and lower lip, which on occasion causes me to bite my lower lip when eating or I may spill food or liquid on my chin and not realize it is there. I do have sensation in these areas but it is diminished. Will this continue to improve with time even though it has already been several years or is this the best I can expect it to be for the rest of my life? Also, should I be able to get an MRI with the titanium plates and screws in my jaws?

It is sad to be said but the altered feelings reside in 18 months. Everything that stays beyond this time – stays for a much longer time if not forever. Regarding MRI – we kindly advice to refer to your surgeon to ask what kind of plates were used for fixing the jaws, then it would be easier to answer your questions.
