    you would be requiring an orthognathic surgery which involves movement of either lower jaw or upper jaw or both of them to correct the facial assymmetry ...substitute to this is genioplasty i.e. chin bone reduction. So you need to consult both an orthodontist and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. An orthodontist will place braces on the upper and lower teeth in order to move the teeth into their best position prior to orthognathic surgery. Orthognathic surgery is then necessary to correct the position of the upper jaw, lower jaw or both. After the jaws have been repositioned surgically, your orthodontist is then able to properly align your teeth and correct your bite abnormality....For more info you can visit....http://www.identalhub.com/article_choosing-right-type-of-braces-159.aspx
