The revised edition of this popular book presents a concise approach to the diagnosis and surgical treatment of patients with dentofacial deformities. In-depth chapters detail the treatment process of patient evaluation, analysis of diagnostic records, development of a visual treatment objective, treatment planning, and surgical management. The most common surgical techniques are featured in step-by-step protocols. Although the basic science of orthognathic surgery remains unchanged, the contents of this book have been updated to reflect the most current interpretation of diagnostic data, including expanded discussions of the rotation of the maxillomandibular complex and anterior open bite dentofacial deformities as well as new sections on distraction osteogenesis and the intraoral vertical mandibular ramus osteotomy. Full-color illustrations and comprehensive case reports complement the text and demonstrate treatment outcomes. With its emphasis on successful and predictable results, this excellent surgical guide is ideal for residents and a valued resource for experienced surgeons.
