Pre and post surgical orthodontics: A literature review

AUTHOR(S): Asjad Nizar, Sheethal Jayachandran, Jibin Joy, K Nillan Shetty and Harshitha Kotian
ABSTRACT:Surgical orthodontics refers to surgical procedures carried out as an adjunct to or in conjunction with orthodontic treatment. These are usually carried out to eliminate an etiologic factor or to correct severe dentofacial abnormalities that cannot satisfactorily be treated by growth modification procedures or by orthodontic camouflage. However, surgical treatment is not a substitute for orthodontics. Instead, it must be properly coordinated with orthodontics and other dental treatment for achieving good overall results especially in case of severe dentofacial problems.
