HEH Lunchtime Talk: "Beauty can be more than skin deep" (Please note that the talk on 16 Mar is cancelled and will be conducted on 9 Mar concurrently with Dr Tay Chong Meng's talk.)


Dr John Loh
Consultant
University Dental Cluster (Oral Maxillofacial Surgery)

Synopsis

Jaw functions, such as speech and chewing, may be affected by the disproportions of the upper and lower jaws, as the teeth may not be biting together well. Lack of harmony of the facial bones and jaws can affect facial aesthetics as well. Scientific research has also proven that there is a psychological impact on people with dentofacial deformities.

Upper and lower jaw deformities and discrepancies can be corrected in a few ways. One of them is orthognathic surgery which is the correction and restoration of facial harmony and aesthetics through surgery of the facial bones, specifically the jaws.

This talk introduces orthognathic surgery and the various types of dentofacial deformities along with the possible corrections available to give you a better understanding of the treatment options for such jaw problems.
