2017 Annual Session Conference


AS17B53B - SARPE vs Segmental Osteotomies for Maxillary Skeletal Expansion


Apr 25, 2017 8:30am ‐ Apr 25, 2017 9:00am

Description

Misleading rules of thumb and common misperceptions exist regarding guidelines for maxillary skeletal expansion in nongrowing patients. The choice of a SARPE or a segmental osteotomy should be foremost a diagnostic decision. This lecture will present clear principles for choosing the appropriate method for skeletal expansion of the maxilla.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the surgical similarities and differences between a SARPE procedure and a segmental osteotomy for maxillary skeletal expansion.
  • Recognize how analysis of maxillary intra-arch discrepancies, and objectives for the transverse dimension influence the appropriate choice.
  • Manage the presurgical and postsurgical orthodontics of both methods for skeletal expansion.
