Surgical cephalometric prediction tracing for the alteration of the occlusal plane by means of rotation of the maxillomandibular complex

Reyneke

The surgical cephalometric prediction tracing involving the alteration of the occlusal plane differs from the conventi onal surgical prediction tracing. When conventional surgical prediction is developed, the final occlusal plane is dictated by the occlusal plane of the mandible, with or without autorotation. The mandible (and therefore the mandibular occlusal plane) will rotate around a point at or just posterior to the condyle. This principle is not adhered to in treatment planning requiring rotation of the maxillomandibular complex and consequent alteration of the occlusal plane. The aim of this paper is to present a method for developing a surgical cephalometric prediction tracing involving rotation of the maxillomandibular complex.
