What is Protruding Mouth Surgery?
Two-jaw Surgery
Protruding mouth is referred to a condition when frontal
teeth and gum is protruded compared to normal range

First, protruding mouth can be observed when upper
and lower jaw is normal but only teeth are protruded.
Second, when teeth are straight but gum
bone itself is protruded.
Last, gum bone and teeth are both protruded.
Protruding mouth can give dull
and dissatisfaction impression to others
Protruding Mouth Self Diagnosis
Mouth is always opened without being aware of it
Nasolabial folds on sides of nose are obvious
Gum is exposed too much when smiling
Lips look thick
Wrinkles are created at the end of the chin and lips and chin area looks unnatural when mouth is closed
Nose looks lower than actual height of chin looks smaller
Chin looks receding
Lips look protruded even after rhinoplasty and weak chin correction

Protruding Mouth Self Diagnosis

1
Protruding mouth with normal chin
2
Protruding mouth with weak chin
3
Protruding mouth with long chin

Protruding mouth surgery can be
done after simple teeth extraction
Two jaw surgery is necessary since
protrusion degree is different
for upper and lower teeth
Usually protrusion is not so severe,
face will look longer when long face
is not corrected at the same time

Two Jaw/Facial Contouring Surgery is Grand

1
Solve a problem that takes more than 2 years with orthodontics, at once with surgery
There are many cases for Asians when gum bone itself is more protruded than teeth that causes protruding mouth
In such case, protruding mouth cannot be effectively corrected only with orthodontics
In case for gum bone protrusion, osteotomy to push back protruded gum bone will be performed and in case of complex case,
two jaw surgery will be performed to shorten treatment period
2
What if only orthodontic is done?
There won’t be much difference in frame and bone,
only the teeth will be pushed back which can lead to even worse appearance due to wrong and abnormal pushing of teeth.
Grand performs two jaw surgery using laser
Facial contouring operation can be done without heating damage
and vibration to gently cut bone using water and laser.

 01| Less damage to bone compared to cutting it with saw. 
 02|
 Laser helps bone cells to regenerate so that
 the bone after surgery can heal quickly. 
 03| Less damage to nearby tissue, soft tissue and cells. 
 04| Less bleeding. 
 05| Surgery procedure is safe.

Protruding mouth surgery with safe two jaw surgery
Protruding mouth surgery with two jaw surgery is a surgery to fracture face bone where various
nerves and blood vessels are, therefore, experienced skilled specialist should perform this surgery.
Grand accurately analyzes face with 3D and takes priority to cut
without touching nerves, therefore, safe surgery is even possible for advanced surgery.

Protruding mouth>transformation to three dimensional small face
Three dimensional face line can be achieved with not only correcting mouth area to face line,
but also with change in structure as well as reduction

No Minor Effect
· Balanced reductive effect can be expected due to overall face reduction as well as shape change
· Result and satisfaction rate is high by performing surgery
  considering overall face as a one face line and trims to fix center line of face

Thorough after care and recovery system
Grand tries to minimize daily life discomfort and shorten recovery period
by thorough after care system to reduce swelling and pain after lower jaw surgery

Realizing beautiful face line by accurate measurement 3D CT scan.

Scientific analyzation as well as shortening recovery time
by minimizing operation time is possible due to diagnosis
complications (paresthesia due to nerve damage,
excessive bleeding during the surgery due to abnormal
anatomical structure, definite diagnosis to check
if free airway is difficult during general anesthesia,
prediction of free airway after the surgery) in advance.

It is difficult for an accurate diagnosis with existing 2D
(panorama, X-ray) system due to an error by showing three
dimensional face to flatways.

‘Scientific Diagnosis’and ‘Complex Therapy’
influence surgery result.

through 3D CT

Grand’s Protruding Mouth Surgery Method
Facial Contouring Surgery

Anterior Segmental Osteotomy (ASO) When occlusion matches
It is general protruding mouth surgery performed when teeth are straight,
just gum itself is protruding
1
Protrusion degree is diagnosed through 3D CT scan for accurate diagnosis
2
Extract teeth at back of canine teeth and push gum backward as the same gap of the taken teeth
3
Protruding mouth will be corrected and pushed back to 6-7 mm as a size of extracted teeth
+
Advantage of Grand’s Anterior Segmental Osteotomy (ASO)
Effective with 1 time surgery and result can be seen 1-2 weeks after the surgery
Swelling is less compared to other facial contouring surgery, return to daily life can be shortened
It takes around 2 years for orthodontics, however, orthodontic period can be shortened to 6 months to a year

Three Jaw Surgery When mouth is severely protruded with severe weak chin

It requires advanced technique which is performed with ASO and
two jaw surgery at the same time.
Three jaw surgery is required for severely protruded mouth and severe weak chin
1
Diagnosis degree of protruding mouth through 3D CT scan for accurate dianosis
2
Extract tooth at the back of canine tooth and secure 7-8 mm of space
3
Mouth will pushed back as much as the distance that moved backwards which will improve
protruding mouth and will require orthodontics after protruding mouth surgery
4
Movement after excision – cut bone as much as extracted space and move front teeth,
lower teeth and whole alveolar bone back to molar
+
Advantage of Grand’s Three Jaw Surgery
Both face structure problem and gum exposure can be solved at once
Nose will relatively look higher
Younger looking face can be achieved
