An Overview of Timeline of Interventions in the Continuum of Cleft Lip and Palate Care
by David Yates, Veerasathpurush Allareddy, Jennifer Caplin, Sumit Yadav, Michael R. Markiewicz on 27/02/2020 at 12:00 am
This article provides an overview of timeline of interventions and the critical role different providers have in the continuum of cleft lip and palate care. The earliest intervention is the presurgical infant orthopedic treatment, which is initiated in the first few weeks of life. This is followed by several interventions done in a phased manner. These include: lip repair, palate repair, velopharyngeal surgery, maxillary expansion, maxillary bone grafting, limited phase of orthodontic treatment, comprehensive phase of orthodontic treatment (with/without orthognathic surgery), and restorative dentistry.
Surgical-Orthodontic Considerations in Subcranial and Frontofacial Distraction
by Richard A. Hopper, Hitesh Kapadia, Srinivas M. Susarla on 23/02/2020 at 12:00 am
Subcranial and frontofacial distraction osteogenesis have emerged as powerful tools for management of hypoplasia involving the upper two-thirds of the face. The primary goal of subcranial or frontofacial distraction is to improve the orientation of the upper face and midface structures (frontal bone, orbitozygomatic complex, maxilla, nasal complex) relative to the cranial base, globes, and mandible. The various techniques used are tailored for management of specific phenotypic differences in facial position and may include segmental osteotomies, differential vectors, or synchronous maxillomandibular rotation.
Orthodontic Preparation for Secondary Alveolar Bone Grafting in Patients with Complete Cleft Lip and Palate
by Veerasathpurush Allareddy, Richard Bruun, James MacLaine, Michael R. Markiewicz, Ramon Ruiz, Mark A. Miller on 22/02/2020 at 12:00 am
This article provides an overview of the orthodontic preparation prior to secondary alveolar bone grafting of alveolar defects in those with complete cleft lip and palate. Use of cone beam computed tomography in diagnosis and treatment planning for addressing alveolar clefts, the rationale for maxillary expansion prior to alveolar bone grafting, key steps in differential maxillary expansion, potential adverse effects, and outcomes associated with maxillary expansion are provided in this overview.
Dentofacial Orthopedics for the Cleft Patient
by Veerasathpurush Allareddy, Stephen Shusterman, Elizabeth Ross, Victoria Palermo, Pat Ricalde on 18/02/2020 at 12:00 am
Presurgical infant dentofacial orthopedic treatment (PSIOT) is a process by which cleft maxillary and soft tissue segments can be moved before surgical repair of lip. One of the PSIOT approaches used is the fixed PSIOT using Latham appliances. In this article, the authors provide an overview of this approach and the step-by-step process of placing these appliances intraorally. Prospective randomized clinical studies are necessary to definitively answer concerns surrounding the long-term effects of PSIOT.
An Overview of Craniosynostosis Craniofacial Syndromes for Combined Orthodontic and Surgical Management
by Shayna Azoulay-Avinoam, Richard Bruun, James MacLaine, Veerasathpurush Allareddy, Cory M. Resnick, Bonnie L. Padwa on 18/02/2020 at 12:00 am
This article provides an overview of epidemiology, genetics, and common orofacial features of those with craniosynostosis. Patients with craniosynostosis require several surgical procedures along with continuum of care. The earliest surgical interventions are done during the first few years of life to relieve the fused sutures. Midface advancement, limited phase of orthodontic treatment, and combined orthodontics/orthognathic surgery treatment are usually required during later years. This article presents several examples of cases with outcomes associated with these procedures.
Orthognathic Surgery and Orthodontics
by Katherine P. Klein, Leonard B. Kaban, Mohamed I. Masoud on 01/02/2020 at 12:00 am
Complications in orthognathic surgery are commonly a result of inadequate preoperative planning and communication between the surgeon and orthodontist. Unfavorable outcomes can often be avoided when overall treatment goals along with a surgical and orthodontic plan are developed and agreed upon by the orthodontist, surgeon, and patient before the start of active tooth movement or any surgical procedures. Continuous evaluation of the patient’s progress throughout treatment and subsequent communication between the surgeon and orthodontist are recommended to prevent frequent errors, such as inadequate dental decompensation, poor appliance selection or management, and occasional contraindicated orthodontic elastic traction or tooth movements.

Surgical/Orthodontic Correction of Transverse Maxillary Discrepancies
by Johan P. Reyneke, Richard Scott Conley on 04/11/2019 at 12:00 am
The transverse dimension is a critical component of comprehensive treatment in orthognathic surgery. Several treatment approaches exist and the team must consider the patient’s needs, desires, and limitations when working to correct the malocclusion. Treatment approaches may include only orthodontic expansion or rapid palatal orthodontic expansion; however, in adults, the orthodontist may require surgical assistance to expand the bony maxilla. Segmental maxillary expansion may be indicated in severe transverse deficiencies of the maxillary arch or dentofacial deformity patients also requiring vertical and sagittal corrections. The various treatment options, advantages, and disadvantages, and indications for each surgical approach are discussed.
Orthodontics for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Patient
by Michael R. Markiewicz, Veerasathpurush Allareddy, Michael Miloro on 04/11/2019 at 12:00 am
The specialties of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Orthodontics are intimately related. In fact, it can be stated that, in many cases, “an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon (OMFS) is only as good as their Orthodontist.” This relationship and collaboration between these 2 specialties are critical to the success of the orthodontist and surgeon, and, in turn, the success of their patient. This could not be more evident than in the field of orthognathic surgery, where the outcomes, and, in actuality, the frank ability of the surgeon to perform the procedure are dictated by the level of appropriate orthodontic preparation of that patient, based upon an the initial, and evolving, treatment plan determined by the surgeon, orthodontist, and patient.
Digital Workflow for Combined Orthodontics and Orthognathic Surgery
by Mohammed H. Elnagar, Sharon Aronovich, Budi Kusnoto on 04/11/2019 at 12:00 am
This article provides an overview of the digital workflow process for Combined orthodontics and Orthognathic surgery treatment starting from data acquisition (3-dimensional scanning, cone-beam computed tomography), data preparation, processing and Creation of a three-dimensional virtual augmented model of the head. Establishing a Proper Diagnosis and Quantification of the Dentofacial Deformity using 3D diagnostic model. Furthermore, performance of 3-dimensional Virtual orthognathic surgical treatment, and the construction of a surgical splint (via 3-dimensional printing) to allow transfer of the treatment plan to the actual patient during surgery.
Interceptive Dentofacial Orthopedics (Growth Modification)
by Jennifer Caplin, Michael D. Han, Michael Miloro, Veerasathpurush Allareddy, Michael R. Markiewicz on 04/11/2019 at 12:00 am
Although all dentofacial deformities involve deviation of skeletal and dental units that require correction, the timing and method of treatment can vary considerably. Growth is a key consideration when managing dentofacial deformities, because it has a direct impact on the timing and method of management. Some deformities may be intercepted and managed during growth, whereas others can only be definitively managed after cessation of growth. This article focuses on clinical considerations of growth in managing dentofacial deformities, and discusses methods of growth evaluation and interceptive orthodontic management strategies in different types of dentofacial deformities.
Interdisciplinary Management of Dentofacial Deformity in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
by Peter Stoustrup, Thomas Klit Pedersen, Sven Erik Nørholt, Cory M. Resnick, Shelly Abramowicz on 04/11/2019 at 12:00 am
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthritis impacts mandibular growth and development. This can result in skeletal deformity, such as facial asymmetry and/or malocclusion asymmetry. This article reviews the unique properties of TMJ and dentofacial growth and development in the setting of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Specific orthopedic/orthodontic and surgical management of children with JIA and TMJ arthritis is discussed. The importance of interdisciplinary collaboration is highlighted.
Temporary Skeletal Anchorage Techniques
by Jason P. Jones, Mohammed H. Elnagar, Daniel E. Perez on 01/11/2019 at 12:00 am
As orthodontic treatment has advanced in complexity and in frequency, more recent techniques, using temporary skeletal anchorage, were developed to help correct more severe occlusal and dentofacial discrepancies that were treated with orthognathic surgery alone previously. These techniques have allowed the orthodontist to move teeth against a rigid fixation, allowing for more focused movements of teeth and for orthopedic growth modification. These types of treatments using rigid fixation have allowed for greater interaction between the orthodontist and the oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and have vastly enhanced the treatment planning for the orthodontist in today’s society.
Orthodontic and Surgical Considerations for Treating Impacted Teeth
by Veerasathpurush Allareddy, Jennifer Caplin, Michael R. Markiewicz, Daniel J. Meara on 01/11/2019 at 12:00 am
Impacted teeth occur in a significant number of patients. Their management requires coordinated efforts of orthodontists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Specifically, optimal results require a prompt orthodontic diagnosis and treatment plan with execution of either closed or open exposure of impacted teeth by the oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Failure to consider orthodontic mechanics and proper surgical technique can lead to suboptimal results. Thus, orthodontist/oral and maxillofacial surgeon communication is essential for success and patient education and shared decision-making is mandatory before initiating treatment.
Idiopathic Condylar Resorption
by Louis G. Mercuri, Chester S. Handelman on 01/11/2019 at 12:00 am
Idiopathic condylar resorption (ICR), alternatively called progressive condylar resorption, is an uncommon aggressive form of degenerative disease of the temporomandibular joint seen mostly in adolescent and young women. ICR occurring before the completion of growth results in a shorter mandibular condyloid process, ramus and body, compensatory growth at the gonial angle and coronoid process, as well as an increase in anterior facial vertical dimension. Management options discussed include oral appliances, orthodontics, medical management, orthognathic surgery with and without disc repositioning, and alloplastic temporomandibular joint replacement.
Comprehensive Post Orthognathic Surgery Orthodontics
by Larry M. Wolford on 01/11/2019 at 12:00 am
Post orthognathic surgery patient management is critical for high-quality and predictable outcomes. Surgeons and orthodontists must have the knowledge and ability to implement postsurgical management protocols and strategies to provide the best care and outcomes possible. This article presents basic concepts, philosophies, treatment protocols, risks, and potential complications associated with postsurgical patient management. Postsurgical orthodontic goals are to maximize the occlusal fit and provide predictable means to retain the occlusion. Aggressive orthodontic mechanics may be required to provide the best occlusal fit. Complications can occur, but early recognition of complications and implementation of corrective tactics should minimize adverse outcomes.
Dentoalveolar Distraction Osteogenesis for Rapid Maxillary Canine Retraction
by Sumit Yadav, Michael R. Markiewicz, Veerasathpurush Allareddy on 01/11/2019 at 12:00 am
Patients and orthodontists seek to reduce treatment time in braces. Rapid canine retraction through dentoalveolar distraction osteogenesis is one of several treatment approaches to reduce treatment in braces. This article provides an overview of technique of dentoalveolar distraction osteogenesis to accomplish rapid canine retraction and associated outcomes. When this treatment protocol is implemented well, rapid canine retraction is achieved predictably with minimal side effects. Although current evidence suggests that adverse sequelae, such as root resorptions and pulp devitalization, are rare, prospective clinical studies that are adequately powered and documenting long-term follow-up of these outcomes are lacking.
Aesthetic Facial Surgery and Orthodontics
by Petra Olivieri, Flavio A. Uribe, Faisal A. Quereshy on 01/11/2019 at 12:00 am
Many of the aesthetic facial procedures can be performed simultaneously at the time of initial orthognathic surgery. Correction of any residual deformities after surgery, such as mandibular notching, malar asymmetry, labiomental crease, and any camouflage treatment, should be performed as a delayed procedure, when the outcome is more predictable. Additionally, these procedures could be used to enhance the orthodontic result, without the need of osteotomies to reposition the bones.
Surgery-First Approach in the Orthognathic Patient
by Flavio A. Uribe, Brian Farrell on 01/11/2019 at 12:00 am
The surgery-first approach (SFA) has become a recent alternative to the conventional 3-stage approach to orthognathic surgery. Skeletal anchorage in orthodontics has facilitated the resurgence of this treatment sequence. By eliminating the presurgical phase of orthodontic treatment, patients have immediate resolution to their facial deformity. Treatment duration has been shown to be reduced; the difference with the conventional approach being approximately 5 months. Patient satisfaction with this approach is very high as measured by quality-of-life surveys. This article describes the indications and step-by-step approach of this technique in conjunction with virtual surgical planning.
