During the 26th International Scientific Congress of the TDB (Türk Dişhekimleri Birliği – Turkish Dentist Union), presented a paper entitled “Current Approaches to Orthognathic Surgery”.

Dentists in their clinical practice often encounter acquired or congenital dentofacial deformations. The diagnosis and treatment of these disorders require the active participation of dentists, specialists in maxillofacial surgery, and orthodontists. As dentofacial deformations affect in combination the teeth, jawbones, and other anatomic features making up the face, they are treated not only as an aesthetical issue but also as an etiological factor in complicated health issues such as chewing disorders, respiratory complications, growth and development issues, and temporomandibular joint disorders.

The purpose of the presentation was to share the current approaches to orthognathic surgery methods used to treat dentofacial deformations with dentists, maxillofacial surgery specialists, and orthodontists working in the field. The paper for the 26th Internal Scientific Congress of the TDB (Türk Dişhekimleri Birliği – Turkish Dentist Union) entitled “Current Approaches to Orthognathic Surgery,” presented the complementary surgical procedures such as surgical procedures conducted using special operation guides produced with digital surgical planning and 3D design and production technology, as well as fat graft procedures and facial implants done using multiple-segment osteotomy.
