Orthognathic surgery in correcting dentofacial defects.


Advances in orthognathic surgery now make it possible to correct most skeletal abnormalities of the face. Simple screening measures can be quickly applied to assess the patient who appears to be a candidate. Cases are carefully planned and coordinated, with the aid of special diagnostic procedures to identify the problem and select the appropriate management. Properly executed, these techniques result in a lifetime of improved function and aesthetics.
