Cephalometric evaluation of surgical mandibular advancement

Dentoskeletal deformities are known to cause severe functional and esthetic complaints in patients. Combined orthodontic and surgical treatment is the best choice for adult individuals, since it results in better esthetic appearance and function, followed by long term stability. Compensatory treatment can lead to occlusal and muscular changes, dysfunctional problems, and TMJ disorders.

The diagnosis and treatment plan for patients with dentoskeletal deformities should be carried out individually, with cephalometric, occlusal and facial analyses, which take into account the position of the maxillary and mandibular incisors on the basal bone.
