Surgical Orthodontics


Live. Laugh. Love. Smile. There's always something new to learn

Preparation for Orthognathic Surgery is a puzzle which perplexes the mind of even the most skilled Orthodontist and surgeon alike. A surgical case still remains as a challenge due to its high variant of treatment quality.

With a systematic approach of proper diagnosis, evaluation and treatment planning using a fully adjustable articulator (SAM-3) we can consistently provide successful results even in complicated surgical cases.

This course will provide a clear prescription to the enigmatic surgical cases, understanding of the principles and treatment strategies, to achieve better aesthetics and function.

Course overview:

The hands-on workshop covers facial analysis, cephalometric treatment planning and articulator model surgery. Each participant will complete a facial analysis which will direct cephalometric treatment planning. Indicated cephalomatric changes will then be used to guide articulated model surgery. Students’ work will be compared to the  patients’ actual treatment plan and surgery.
