The fundamental basics of patient care, during orthognathic surgery, have been well known for several years. This therapeutic treatment requires cooperation between orthodontist and surgeon from the orthodontic preparation stage until the retention period. Over the past few years, the combined surgical and orthodontic protocols have undergone both an important technical and conceptual evolution, making them easier to tolerate with more stable results. The main explanation for this is more systematic consideration of the functional parameters involved in the treatment, leading to multidisciplinary care.
We found it interesting, in 2016, to update on this combined surgical and orthodontic therapeutic strategy.
