What is underbite?
The causes of underbite
The cause of underbite may be inherited from parents right from birth or due to the habits of tongue thrusting, thumb sucking … gradually forming a teeth protruding condition, or it may also be due to strong trauma to the lower jaw.
Regardless of the cause, the underbite condition directly affects the chewing function of the jaw and the overall facial aesthetic, making people suffering from this condition become shy and lack confidence.
BSSO underbite treatment
BSSO underbite treatment is a surgical method that involves cutting the lower jaw bone and pushing it back so that the bite joint coincides with the upper jaw bone, making the face more symmetrical.
Depending on each case and the severity of underbite, the doctor will decide to perform lower jaw surgery or both upper and lower jaw surgery:
- Mild underbite: Apply the BSSO method to surgically cut the lower jaw bone and push it back to realign the bite joint, then fix the jawbone with a brace to shape the jawbone.
- Severe underbite: Simultaneous application of mandibular osteotomy, apply BSSO to push back the lower jawbone and maxillary osteotomy, pulling the upper jawbone forward with Lefort 1 to realign the bite joinnt.
Who should have BSSO underbite treatment?
For those who have underbite conditions that cannot be completely treated by braces, so BSSO treatment is considered a quick and effective treatment method to correct the lower jawbone:
- Those who have overdeveloped lower jawbone that deviated from the upper jawbone.
- Those who have a protruding lower jawbone and teeth.
- Those who have unaligned bite joints.
