Mandible - Facial asymmetry

Most of the post-traumatic mandibular deformities will at least have some impact on facial symmetry and esthetics. Normally, the correction of occlusal, functional, and anatomic issues will also resolve esthetic issues. However, in some cases, esthetic issues may persist and need further corrections.

The evaluation of patients with facial asymmetry is similar to that of orthognathic patients and can be found in the section on orthognathic surgery.
