The condition of the body parts that are not symmetrical compared to the other side of the body is a form of variation in body conditions experienced by an individual. Asymmetrical body parts can occur in any part of the body, whether the eyes, ears, hands, fingers, breasts or other body parts. This condition can occur naturally or can be due to certain medical conditions.
The presence of comorbid complaints in patients with asymmetrical body parts will be a clinical clue to determine whether the condition is a natural thing or because of certain medical conditions.
Some of the things below can cause asymmetrical body parts, such as:
1. a natural variation of humans, so it is a natural condition
2. infection and inflammation
In connection with your question, if your friend appears asymmetrical in the jaw or gum region, and this has happened since childhood, then this condition is likely a form of genetic variation of the individual, thus giving a characteristic to the individual concerned. The existence of this natural process is a natural and not a disorder experienced by your friend. However, sometimes for some individuals this condition will cause aesthetic disturbances or appearance which can cause decreased confidence. And most individuals also remain proud and confident with the conditions of physical variation they have.
And to make sure the cause of the appearance of the jaw that looks big this side, you should advise your friend to consult a dentist and mouth or to an orthopedic doctor for direct examination and direct evaluation. With this direct examination, the doctor can ascertain the cause mainly supported by the required radiological examination.
