Program topics

Skeletal and dental deformities – how we treat it from first until last step

I. Diagnosis: knowing the patient to decide the treatment plan with the orthodontist

Face. Facial analysis – what we need to see to make the diagnosis of pathologies
Occlusion. Knowing the limits of stable occlusion in long term
Airway. Helping to decide the treatment plan to correct skeletal deformity
TMJ. What we need to understand about TMJ pathologies and the relation with orthognathic surgery?
Teeth and gums. The consequences in tissues around after the final decision

II. How do we read the face? Deciding the numbers for facial reconstruction …

Position of the maxilla – deciding the numbers for maxilla movements
Position of the mandible – deciding the amount and rotation of mandible
Position of chin – deciding the chin position
Facial symmetry – what do we need to see in asymmetric patients?
Facial width – what is the better relation for width in a face?

III. Airway and Management of TMJ in skeletal deformities

IV. Pre-surgical orthodontics

Orthodontic goals for correction of dental inclinations, Bolton discrepancy, transversal problems, curve of Spee
Surgical goals for correction of long lip, prosthetic spaces, ankyloses, gum problems
Restorative goals for correction of tooth shape problems, Bolton index, prosthetic spaces, restorative problems

V. Virtual planning x conventional

The advantages and disadvantages of virtual and conventional planning

VI. Patient preparation for orthognathic surgery – what do we need to know to better prepare my patient for surgery – how we do it?

Facial analysis
Head position
Bite registration and tomography

VII. Surgical technique and sequence

BSSO. How and why do we do in this way?
Le Fort I osteotomy. What is essential for maxillary surgery?
Le Fort I segmented osteotomy. What should we care about segmentation of maxilla?
Genioplasty. Many kinds of osteotomies for chin surgery
Osteotomy of the base – when is it necessary?
Chin wing osteotomy. Indications and results
TMJ surgery. Our protocol of TMJ surgery simultaneously with orthognathic surgery
