dc.descriptionUnfavourable dental and facial features can have a psychological impact on patients. Orthodontic treatment can have a positive impact on the psychosocial well-being of patients who are bullied about dentofacial features. The use of orthognathic surgery in growing patients to correct dentofacial deformity is a controversial topic. This case report describes the treatment performed for a 13-year-old girl who presented complaining of a “different bite and prominent chin”, which was attracting insults at school. Insults regarding her teeth and jaw caused symptoms such as anxiety and stomach pains prior to school in the morning. As a result of the negative psychological effects of the serious bullying, it was decided to proceed with early orthognathic surgery for psychological reasons.en
