WHY MALOCCLUSION SURGERY, AND WHY CHOOSE A PLASTIC SURGEON?
Malocclusion is the term for when teeth come together improperly resulting in an abnormal bite. The jaw may be misaligned, shifted forward or back, causing functional problems like, uneven/harmful tooth wear, jaw pain or headache, damaged/sensitive teeth, or trouble chewing or swallowing.
An over- or underbite also affects the aesthetic proportions of the face. The jaw defines the borders of the face and is intimately tied to the attractiveness of the face. Dr Gandolfi trained with leading Oral Surgeons and Plastic Surgeons in Los Angeles to develop the techniques he uses to optimize both occlusion and appearance. The focus on the tissues of the face during the procedure is unique and why you should consider Dr Gandolfi.
