Facial evaluation in orthognathic surgery

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Patients with dentofacial deformities are best cared for by a multidisciplinary team, a comprehensive care setting with orthodontics, dentistry, speech therapy, social services, and internal medicine or pediatrics working along with the plastic surgeon. Orthognathic surgery does not eliminate the need for orthodontic intervention, but instead works in concert with the orthodontics to create the optimal outcome. The goal is an optimal dental relationship and facial aesthetic. Design of the surgical plan often starts with an accurate evaluation of the facial aesthetic relationships.
