OBSERVATION AND SOLUTIONS FOR CRANIO-FACIAL GROWTH
SURGERY IN THE 4TH DIMENSION 

Facial changes have been demonstrated in all age groups although the exact age of onset along with the magnitude and vectors of the changes are variable and not predictable.  Such three-dimensional changes in the position of teeth and associated bone and soft tissue relative to the static position of implants over the course of time can introduce esthetic and functional negative consequences.  A new surgical protocol including osteotomy modification as well as various grafting procedures to reduce these unintended complications will be presented.

OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the potential vectors in both men and women, should clinically significant adult onset of craniofacial changes occur

  • Explore the surgical planning possibilities to minimize or slow down the impact of such changes

  • For patient already treated, review surgical procedures to correct undesirable esthetic results as well as maintain, evaluate and potentially correct actions if they become necessary
