AS21B68 - Surgery and Orthodontics: Inadequate Planning Leading to Complications


Jun 27, 2021 2:20pm ‐ Jun 27, 2021 2:40pm

Description

Inadequate and inappropriate presurgical treatment planning are commonly the source of unfavorable outcomes or complications in patients undergoing orthognathic surgery. It is critical that the patient's chief complaint, treatment goals, and expectations are established and clearly understood. Miscommunication between providers can result in imporoper or insufficient dental decompensation, increased treatment time, delay or potentially an increase in magnitude of the operation (eg, turning what could be a single-jaw into a 2-jaw procedure). This lecture will identify common pitfalls in orthgnathic surgical cases and develop a systematic approach to address potential missteps to ensure treatment success.

Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize common pitfalls in surgical orthodontics.
  • Propose stategies to address potential missteps in surgical orthodontic cases in your daily practice.
  • Incorporate a systematic approach to managing surgical orthodontic patients.
