Join Us to Hear Dr. Larry M. Wolford, DMD, at Our Upcoming Symposium
Orthognathic surgical procedures, stabilized with rigid fixation, are inherently stable. However, in the presence of specific TMJ conditions, orthognathic surgery stability will not be predictable with risk of relapse and pain. Most TMJ conditions and pathologies can be placed into specific categories that can aid in determining the nature and expected progression of the TMJ pathology, as well as help to identify the necessary orthodontic, orthognathic and TMJ surgical protocols to achieve highly predictable outcomes.
This presentation will discuss the common TMJ conditions that can cause pre-treatment and post-surgical relapse, occlusal instability, dysfunction, and pain, as well as specific treatment protocols to address the TMJ pathology and correct other associated jaw issues. Topics discussed will also cover diagnosis and management of upper airway obstruction, as well as an update of surgical techniques, occlusal plane alteration, and virtual surgical planning.
