Keep Your Chin Up with a Genioplasty

WE’VE ALL HEARD THE ROUSING MAXIM: “keep your chin up” as a cheerful reminder to remain positive and persistent.

In comprehensive orthodontic treatment, surprisingly, some chins literally and physically need to be brought up.

A Genioplasty Can Restore The Balance Of The Face

The maxillofacial procedure to lift a chin is called genioplasty. This chin augmentation procedure can be completed as an implant or a sliding restructuring of the chin bone.

Sliding a piece of chin bone upward and forward may improve the harmony and balance of a face. Done from within the lower lip, a genioplasty is a relatively easy surgical procedure and does not require an overnight hospital stay.

Get A Beautiful Smile From Every Angle

When genioplasty is benefical, your orthodontist will work closely with a maxillofacial oral surgeon to give you the gorgeous profile you desire as well as beautiful teeth and a healthy and functional bite.

This case was treated by Board Certified orthodontist Dr. Ann Marie Gorczyca of Gorczyca Orthodontics, Antioch, CA. Find us at www.clubbraces.com or call (925) 757-9000 for a complimentary consultation.

So keep your head high,
keep your chin up, and
most importantly,
keep smiling, because
life’s a beautiful thing and
there’s so much to smile about.

-Marilyn Monroe
