KB 2010Place the FPT on the originaltracing of the cephalogramsuch that the lower incisorand symphysis of bothcoincide. Estimate thepredicted chin and lower lipshape. KB 2010 48
  • Your FPT should now look like this. Measure the vertical and AP predicted movement of the maxilla and mandible and record the measurements. Note that the post-surgical occlusal plane in this example was determined by the occlusal plane of the mandible after rotation; however the occlusal plane can be adjusted (within limits) to fit the needs of the individual case.

Predict ideal A.P. position of maxilla form lateral ceph 2. Predict ideal superior/inferior position of anterior maxilla from clinical incisal show 3. Set occlusal plane: Use Xi point, Frankfort Horizontal and mandibular occlusal plane as primary guides 4. Find required lateral repositioning of maxilla from clinical assessment of midlines 5. Assess cant from clinical measurement and mounted casts 6. Assess maxillary arch width from models KB 2010 52
  • Detailed Process in Planning (continued)7. Trace the new maxilla and mandible positions (VTO) as we did in the exercises.8. Re-analyze using Ricketts to compare the VTO to cephalometric norms.9. Record the intended changes in vertical, transverse, AP and arch width dimensions of the posterior and anterior maxilla and the intended amount of set back/push forward at the mandibular osteotomy. KB 2010 Detailed Process in Planning (Step Back)10. Are the movement planned so far reasonable. If not start again and redistribute the movements between the maxilla and mandible, or change the plan entirely, (SARPE or more orthodontics) KB 2010 53
  • Detailed Process in Planning (Chin and Profile)11. Assess the projected soft tissue profile, particularly the chin12. Proceed to model surgery13. Verify on the models that the movements are surgically feasible KB 2010 Model Surgery and Splint Construction KB 2010 54
  • Model Surgery 1. Calculate the new measurements that would give the desired new maxillary cast position (AP, Vertical and Transverse). 2. Segmentalize the upper segment if necessary and make occlusal adjustments to give best intercuspation 3. Mount maxillary model to new position using the Erickson model block and platform 4. Mount mandibular model to new position (in occlusion with upper model) on the articulator 5. Verify movements correlate with intention 6. Note magnitude of movements in all planes 7. Verify movements are surgically feasible 8. Construct splints KB 2010 Adjust Occlusal SurfacesSegment maxillarycast at this stage toachieve bestocclusion ifperforming multi-piece Le Fort 1 Record where occlusal adjustments are made so that they can be duplicated intraoperatively KB 2010 55

KB 2010 58
  • TMJ Considerations in Orthognathic Surgery KB 2010 The “Normal” TMJ• What does a normal TMJ look like and how do we identify it? – Clinically – Radiographically – MRI KB 2010 59
  • KB 2010KB 2010 60
  • KB 2010Goals of Orthognathic Surgery as Relate to the TMJ• Restore/maintain “normal” range of opening• Eliminate/avoid joint pain and noises• Achieve stable condyle and meniscus position in fossa when teeth are in centric occlusion• Where is the ideal location for the condyle? KB 2010 61
  • Condylar Malposition• Condylar sag: Inferior displacement of the condylar head within the glenoid fossa KB 2010 Central Condylar Sag• Condyle is positioned inferiorly in the fossa• No contact between condylar head and articular fossa in centric occlusion• Immediate malocclusion on release of fixation (assuming no hemarthrosis or joint edema is present) KB 2010 62
  • Central Condylar Sag KB 2010 Peripheral Condylar Sag• Contact between condylar head and articular fossa may support the inferiorly positioned condylar head• Immediate or late relapse• Late relapse associated with condylar resorption KB 2010 63
  • Peripheral Condylar Sag KB 2010 Condylar Resorption KB 2010 64
  • Other Causes of Condylar Malposition• Posterior positioning of condyle is associated with increased risk of post-operative symptoms of popping and locking.• Limit that the condyle may be posteriorly positioned increased by – Supine, paralyzed state – Improper surgical technique – Condylar sag KB 2010Other Causes of Condylar Malposition• Uneven contacts between the proximal and distal segments may cause the condyle to become laterally or medially displaced when fixation is applied KB 2010 65
  • KB 2010KB 2010 66
  • Minimizing Condylar Malposition • Avoid creating intrarticular edema or hemarthrosis – Support during split – Support during mobilization – Avoid rotating the condyle around its long axis KB 2010 Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Avoid bad splits; they complicate condylar positioning! KB 2010 67
  • Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Ensure adequate stripping of medial pterygoid to eliminate interference to distal movement of distal segment.• Reduce bony interferences, especially on mandibular setback. KB 2010 Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Eliminate uneven contact between osteotomized segments that prevent passive, even and stable apposition KB 2010 68
  • Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Gentle use of clamps to hold segments whilst placing fixation KB 2010 Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Use shims of bone to eliminate inter- segmental gaps KB 2010 69
  • Minimizing Condylar Malposition • Avoid lag screw fixation • Positional screws are fine KB 2010 Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Plates can be adapted in order to provide passive fixation. More difficult to achieve with positional screws. KB 2010 70
  • Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Positioning the condyle prior to fixation – Direction of force – Magnitude of force KB 2010 KB 2010 71
  • Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Ensure adequate bone removal at posterior of maxilla in Le Fort 1 osteotomy KB 2010 KB 2010 72
  • Minimizing Condylar Malposition• Avoid heavy post-op elastics as the effect on the occlusion may be more temporary than you think! KB 2010 Idiopathic Condylar Resorption• Progressive alteration of the condylar shape with decreased mass bilaterally, in temporomandibular joints that previously exhibited normal growth patterns• AICR (Adolescent Internal Condylar Resorption) KB 2010 73
  • Risk Factors for ICR• Female • Large mandibular• Age 15-30 advancement• Pre-op TMJ disease • Counterclockwise rotation• Mandibular hypoplasia • IMF• High mandibular plane angle • Posterior repositioning of• Small posterior face height condylar head in fossa• Posterior inclination of • Increase in ramus length condylar neck KB 2010 Idiopathic Condylar Resorption KB 2010 74
  • Idiopathic Condylar Resorption KB 2010 Treatment and Prognosis• Re-osteotomy alone has 50-100% failure rate• Stabilization of occlusion with occlusal splint prior to re-osteotomy has similar failure rate• Orthodontic occlusal compensation and stabilization achievable in some• Advanced cases require condylectomy and joint reconstruction (alloplastic or costochondral) KB 2010 75
  • Effect of Orthognathic Surgery on the Symptomatic TMJ Patient• Lack of consistency in terminology used to categorize TMJ disease• Populations are often poorly described• Outcomes are poorly defined• Lack of information on the post-op condylar position in patients studied KB 2010 Concomitant TMJ and Orthognathic Surgery for Symptomatic TMJ Patients• Pts without symptoms from TMJ pathology can become symptomatic after orthognathic surgery• Pts with anterior disc displacement prior to BSSO will most likely not improve, and may get worse• IVRO in a pt with ADD improves disc-condyle relationships and pain KB 2010 76
  • Concomitant TMJ and Orthognathic Surgery for Symptomatic TMJ Patients• Goncalves et al (JOMS April 2008). Retrospective cohort study, looking at 51 pts with pre-op TMJ symptoms and compared concomitant TMJ + orthognathic surgery to orthognathic surgery alone. Demonstrated improved stability and relief of symptoms in the former group after 31 months follow up KB 2010 Summary• Perform a baseline TMJ exam on every patient• Avoid intra-operative trauma to the TMJ that might cause intra-articular edema• Take care with positioning and fixation of the segments• Orthognathic surgery may induce symptoms from the TMJ• Consider treating the TMJ first if disease is present KB 2010 77
  • Stability Issues KB 2010 Instability• Early: From the time of surgery up to week 8• Late: After 8 weeks KB 2010 78
  • Long Term Stability in Maxillary Osteotomies MORE • ImpactionSTABLE • Setback • Advancement • Downgraft LESS • Expansion (**SARPE)STABLE • Advancement with downgraft KB 2010 Long Term Stability in Mandibular Osteotomies MORE • Advancement***STABLE (Proportional to advancement) • Setback LESSSTABLE ***Idiopathic Condylar Resorption KB 2010 79
  • Limiting Long Term Instability• Bone grafting especially when downgrafting a maxilla by 5mm or more• Conservative moves, not ambitious. (*Cleft cases)• Overcorrection especially when doing a mandibular setback (easier to correct a relapsing class II with ortho than a relapsing class III)• ? Rigid fixation versus IMF. ? Positional Screws versus miniplates KB 2010 Pitfalls in Planning and Execution• Leaving appliance activated at time of surgery• Inadequate strength of arch wire at surgery• Inadequate incisor decompensation (leads to inappropriate incisal relationship)• Inaccurate pre-op occlusal record (condylar position)• Inadequate root divergence before segmentalizing• Hasty split (fracture or nerve damage)• Occlusal splint too thick• Poor condylar position during application of fixation• Excessive torque on proximal segment during fixation KB 2010 80
  • Pitfalls in Planning and Execution (continued)• Compromising blood supply – Gingivae during flap for segmental osteotomy – Over-ambitious advancement Le Fort 1 level• Tear of palatal mucosa during segmentalization• Condylar sag (very difficult to plan for)• Failure to check condylar position post-op• Setback of mandible in presence of a flat chin-throat angle• Planning for >6mm posterior maxillary impaction• Weak brackets/hooks at time of surgery KB 2010 81
