Orthognathic surgery in skeletal Class II patient

Main Article Content

Panida Na Songkhla


This case report showed the outcome of surgical orthodontic treatment in non- growing patient with skeletal Class II malocclusion and prognathic maxilla. Le Fort I maxillary superior reposition and setback, and chin genioplasty were planned to eliminate the etiology of jaw discrepancy and malocclusion. Presurgical orthodontic treatment was performed with non-extraction, aligned and leveled tooth malalignment and flatted curve of Spee. Postsurgical orthodontic treatment was to consolidate residual spaces and to create proper space for dental substitutes. A total treatment time was 31 months. At the end of treatment, skeletal Class I orthognahic maxilla and mandible, canine and molar Class I was accomplished. Gummy smile was corrected and soft tissue profile has improved dramatically. Moreover, the edentulous areas of both arches were placed by dental prostheses.
