The orthogenetic reconstruction team at our lab consists of an orthodontist, a lab technician to support a maxillofacial surgeon.
Pre-surgical plans begin with orthodontically treating each arch independently.
Our technicians are responsible for simulating the surgical outcome in the dental laboratory. The technician’s goal is to occlude the orthodontically corrected models as ideally as possible.
After the carefully positioned sections are past and models are articulated, a surgical splint is fabricated. An orthodontic surgical splint serves two purposes. During surgery, the surgeon will use it as a template guide for accurate placement of the dentoaveolar segment and after surgery it will provide the repositioned bones stability during the healing process.
