The surgery is applied to patients who think that the jaw structure is not compatible with the rest of the face. The common feature of chin deformities is malocclusion, i.e. improper closure of the teeth. Normally the lower (mandibular) and upper (maxillary) teeth contact each other, and the anterior teeth on the upper jaw are a little bit ahead of of the anterior teeth on the lower jaw. Disrupted occlusion leads to irregular contact between the teeth, creating a space between them. The severity of the deformity increases in parallel with the greatness of the space. The space also causes an aesthetic irregularity by affecting the soft tissues and the shape of the face over time. In the process of correction the deformity, surgical interventions are made with intent to position the teeth in such a way as to ensure them to contact each other, in other words, ensure a normal occlusion. In particular, a space between the anterior mandibular and maxillary teeth impairs the functions of the incisor teeth; and consequently, the patient cannot use his/her incisor teeth.
