PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether asymmetric mandibular prognathism accompanies a fundamental difference in soft tissue thickness and whether asymmetric mandibular setback surgery would influence the contour and thickness of the soft tissue of the chin. MATERIALS AND METHODS The present retrospective study included(More)
BACKGROUND The Le Fort I osteotomy is one of the most widely used and useful procedure to correct the dentofacial deformities of the midface. The changes of the maxilla position affect to overlying soft tissue including the nasal structure. Postoperative nasal septum deviation is a rare and unpredicted outcome after the surgery. There are only a few reports(More)
INTRODUCTION This study was intended to determine whether isolated mandibular surgery for the correction of asymmetry could also change perioral soft tissue asymmetry. PATIENTS AND METHODS Skeletal class III patients who had undergone mandibular set-back surgery were included. The subjects were composed of two groups with (n = 20) or without (n = 30)(More)
PURPOSE This study was aimed to evaluate the nasal deviation in patients with asymmetric mandibular prognathism. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-five patients with skeletal class III malocclusion were included in the study. Significant mandibular asymmetry of >4 mm menton deviation in three-dimensional (3D) reformatted cone beam computed tomography images(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this report is to present a new reference for aesthetic mandible surgery using three-dimensional cone-beam computed tomography-based treatment planning for orthognathic surgery which can be implemented in surgical planning and perioperative procedure. METHODS To make an objective standard for evaluating aesthetic mandibular outline,(More)
