Dr. Federico Hernandez Alfaro presents From Orthognathic to Orthofacial Surgery (1.25 CE) Orthognathic surgery has witnessed a revolution in the last decade. From occlusally oriented surgical procedures, we have moved into a whole new scenario which also includes improvement of facial aesthetics, and airway correction. The new concept of Orthofacial Surgery implies aesthetic and functional correction of the facial skeleton and soft tissue mask. New diagnostic approaches based on facial aesthetics, combined with 3D planning and minimally invasive surgical procedures conform a new treatment paradigm.
