A 25-year-old male from Raipur reported to our hospital wanting to correct his gummy smile. He also stated that his protruding upper jaw affected his appearance. He had low self-esteem and complained of inability to close his mouth. He also wanted to enhance his looks. His parents too were anxious to correct his smile and enhance his facial appearance.
Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. SM. Balaji planned for removal of the maxillary bone. The gummy smile was corrected by Anterior Maxillary Osteotomy. Post surgery his appearance improved greatly and his parents were happy with the immediate results. He was overjoyed with the outcome as he was able to close his mouth without any difficulty.
