Low self-esteem due to mandible prognathism
I was always made fun of by other people because of my protruding chin. They would call me a witch. It broke my heart. If I covered my chin, I looked fine so I would always wear a scarf. But I was sick and tired of hiding my face. I was able to find a slim, beautiful face that I’ve always wanted only because I met ID Hospital.
 
Symptoms
When the lower chin protrudes or the face is long, we commonly call it prominent mandible. In most cases, malocclusion is another symptom and it causes the following discomforts.
 
 
Esthetic factors
The face looks long because of the protruding chin, breaking the overall balance of the face and the jaw line and neckline do not look defined.
 
 
Psychological factors
The patient suffers from a very low level of self-esteem and experiences inaccurate
enunciation.
 
 
Functional factors
Malocclusion causes jaw disabilities, discomfort in chewing, and digestion problems.
