Aim and ObjectivesThe prospective study was to evaluate the incidence, type of neurosensory disturbance (NSD), grade its severity and monitor its recovery occurring in the lower lip and chin due to damage to inferior alveolar nerve following orthognathic surgery involving mandible.Materials and MethodsThe study included 10 patients who have undergone sagittal split osteotomy, genioplasty, and anterior subapical osteotomy (ASO). All the patients examined preoperatively and post operatively 1… CONTINUE READING
