Surgical Orthodontics for the Correction of Dentofacial Deformities

Course Description

Dentofacial deformities in adults require the combination and skills of the orthodontist and maxilofacial surgeon. In order to achieve all the functional and esthetic goals. In digital dentistry’s days virtual planning of orthodontics and orthognatic surgical corrections has become a valuable tool. Results can be compared to planning both for reevaluation and sharing information with colleagues and our patients. Virtual planning account for more reliable and precise results in our orthognatic surgery. Orthodontic preparation is the gold standard for maximizing the surgical correction. Cases will illustrate our treatment protocol from A to Z for these complex and challenging situations.
