Previously to determine the degree of tilt of the limbs, including the chin, examination and evaluation was needed directly by the doctor. Some causes of the chin tilted to one side include:
A history of trauma regarding the chin / jaw before
Disorders of the temporomandibular joint
Disorders of the tooth structure or dental malocclusion
The process of chewing on one side for a long time
And various other possible causes
Ideally, a direct examination is needed to assess the abnormality you are complaining about. The doctor will evaluate and provide medical considerations whether medical action needs to be done or not.
Usually if the degree of tilt is not too large and no abnormalities are found, especially when chewing or talking, medical therapy will not be done.
Chewing gum on different sides has not been proven to improve the condition of the jaw deformity in the medical field. The thing that can help is to change habits such as chewing on only one side of your mouth or maintaining your lifestyle.
If a significant degree of tilt is obtained, the surgical procedure can be an option for correcting the lower jaw / chin. In this case, it is strongly recommended to consult directly with a specialist oral surgeon or dentist to obtain more complete and relevant information.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
