About Facial Asymmetry

Most human faces have a mild degree of asymmetry which is virtually unnoticeable in most people. However, the degree of asymmetry in the teeth or face can increase as you get older. Asymmetry in facial features often impacts a person’s confidence, but we offer skilled solutions at Facial Surgery Group to address your concerns. We look forward to working with you to enhance your self-confidence and your smile.

Causes of Facial Asymmetry

Some aspects of facial asymmetry can be present from birth, due to defects or cleft lip and palate. Traumatic injuries can alter the symmetry of your teeth or jaw, as well as pathology such as tumors or cysts. It can also occur more gradually from medical conditions or TMJ disorders that worsen with time.

Facial Surgery Group Can Help

Our skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeons have the expertise to help improve your facial balance and function. Orthodontic treatments are the most common solution to asymmetrical teeth in Kansas City. Orthognathic jaw surgery can be used to correct birth defects, trauma-related injuries, or other developmental jaw problems. TMJ treatments and surgeries can help to alleviate pain and improve chewing ability.
