Description

Advances in computer and imaging technology have brought much of improvement in orthognathic surgery. The “Surgery first approach” (SFA) is much more adopted recently, which allows shorter treatment period and reduces the psychological discomfort due to worsened malocclusion and facial esthetics during pre-surgical orthodontic treatment. However, controversy exists regarding stability compared with conventional orthognathic surgery.

Use of computer-assisted virtual surgical planning and modern printing technology has also been a game changer in orthognathic surgery. Improvement of treatment planning precision and transfer to CAD/CAM-generated surgical splints have been well-documented. These breakthroughs in treatment concept and technology give a so-called “paradigm shift” in orthognathic surgery.

This course consists of a series of lectures in various aspects of SFA and use of 3-dimensional digital planning in orthognathic surgery with computer planning and simulation hands-on. The lectures are presented by distinguished regional and local faculties.
