Dr Priscilla Lu is an experienced orthodontist, specialising in dental issues faced by numerous patients. In a DoctorxDentist post, she focused on concerns and treatments involved in managing bimaxillary protrusion, a condition that she helps patients deal with. Here's what she had to say.

Thank you for your question. The lip position is influenced partly by the teeth as well as the underlying upper jaw position. In individuals with a upper jaw protrusion /dentoalveolar protrusion, changing the teeth position may not have as great an effect on the lips as changing the...
