How To Handle It?
About 3 years ago I had an accident that made my right cheek crushed by the asphalt, over time my right and left cheeks were not the same size and my jaw sounded when I moved it right and left, my face was tilted to the right (seen from the leaning to the right) and my left eye looks lower and my left cheek looks bigger. My sleeping often follows the sunnah (tilted to the right). Do you think I have a shift in the jaw or tilted face and what is the solution, is it therapy or what, thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The components that make up the human face include:
The shape of the cheekbones The shape of the jawbone. Fat content behind the skin. The structure of facial muscles. The integrity of the facial skin
So that the case of faces that are not symmetrical or change, any abnormalities that cause interference with the components above, can be the cause. For example, in people with stroke, there is an abnormality in the nervous system that causes the nerves to not control the facial muscles completely and causes half of the face to become 'down'. Then in those with an advanced lower jaw, operating the jaw or using braces can also slightly change the appearance of the face, and such.
So regarding your question, we cannot answer it now without a supporting examination first. It could be that a bone is broken, or a muscle is damaged, or there is a build-up of fluid, which you should consult your orthopedist or plastic surgeon. Your doctor will likely do a supporting examination in the form of an X-ray or CT scan, before determining the cause and best treatment for you, which usually involves surgery.
Meanwhile, there is actually nothing you can do independently at home regarding the possibility of shifting bones. In fact, you shouldn't do the sorting yourself or use the services of a masseur as this can worsen the condition. So you just have to go through the day as usual, and immediately consult a doctor to get treatment. So, hopefully it answers your question.
