Surgical and orthodontic principles of orthognathic patients and facial treatment planning
Friday 9th November 2018
To follow the clear principles of the accurate diagnostic set up is fundamental to reach the most effective functional and aesthetic treatment result. This course will be discussed challenges in orthodontic and surgical approach in diagnostics and treatment planning and objectives of patients with severe dentofacial deformities. From 2D to the new potentials of 3D imaging for the planning of orthognathic surgery will be demonstrated. It will be illustrated a wide range of case reports and step-by-step procedures in order to give participants a guideline for their use and for further improvement of the quality of patient care.
1. To recognize the needs of maxillofacial surgery and orthodontics;
2. To identify the principles of the clinical evaluation of patients and analysis of diagnostic records;
3. To recognize reproductive parametars for treatment planning;
4. To understand the advantages and disadvantages of 3D virtual and conventional planning;
5. To learn the pre-surgical orthodontic protocols for different skeletal patterns;
6. To understand the esthetic consideration and its impact on patients quality of life.
