I've been undergoing orthodontic treatment for 1.5 years now and I've noticed that my chin has become narrower than it was before, I want to get back my broad chin, can anyone suggest what would help? Like getting a chin implant or anything.

As your teeth alligns in the arch which is v shape or rounded v shape for mandible, your bone also reshapes. So narrowing of your chin, if there, can be a part of the planned orthodontic treatment to increase your facial aesthetics and proper allignment of your teeth.
Hi, there are various surgical procedures available today which can augment ones chin. I would request you to discuss your concern with the treating orthodontist. If he is not sympathetic towards your concern then taking a second opinion from another experienced orthodontist won't be a bad idea. All the best.
