Re: Left/Right chin deviation
Hi all my names Judy and im from the UK, im waiting to have custom made Joints put in (been waiting for years dont know if its ever going to happen) and my chin receeds really badly on the one side. I am very self concious of this ,also when I open my mouth my lower jaw swings to the side. I am hoping that the new implants will solve this problem a bit. About 10 years ago my face was straight from the front but not the side, I had my jaw broken and reset to correct my bite, which it did but has put my face offcentre. My condylar discs are worn to nothing, i have pain though not as bad as some but i am on painkillers all the time.I have an appointment on 7th of july to see my new dr( My other dr retired as i was kept waiting so long) even though the wax models were made about 18 months ago for my new joints. I have heard terrible things about jaw implants and im trying to find out as much as i can.I do know that its a very chancy operation to have it either works or goes wrong , sometimes seriously.I am very scared at the thought of the op and want to get it over with but dont if you know what i mean. I dont like going out because of the way i look, yes i suppose it is vanity but i certainly hav'nt got any. Thanks for listening and take care Judy.
