Case Studies

Case Study 1
The upper jaw was surgically moved upward and widened. This corrected her lip incompetency and restored nasal breathing.
The upper jaw grew downward and was too narrow, as the upper jaw forms the base for the nose. She could not put her lips together and barely could breathe through her nose.

Case Study 2
The lower jaw was surgically moved to the Rear to align with the upper jaw
Her lower jaw grew excessively to the right.

Case Study 3
The upper jaw was surgically widened and aligned with the lower jaw.
She had a severe jaw pain from damage with both TMJ's resulting from abnormal upper jaw growth. After she rehabilitated from TMJ surgery, she then received braces followed by upper jaw surgery.

Case Study 4
The upper jaw was widened and moved forward, and the lower jaw was also moved forward. Orthodontic braces refined his bite. He can now chew and is pain-free.
He had severe jaw pain and TMJ disk dislocation that require TMJ reconstructive surgery; problems related to abnormal jaw growth and severe upper and lower jas misalignment.

Case Study 5
After braces aligned the teeth, the lower jaw was moved forward, and the chin was also repositioned forward to correct jaw misalignment.
Severe, deficient, and asymmetric lower jaw growth caused difficulty chewing and very poor jaw alignment.

Case Study 6
After braces properly aligned teeth, then the upper jaw was moved forward and the lower jaw was set back.
His upper jaw had deficient forward growth and the lower jaw grew forward too much. This caused a malocclusion, difficulty chewing, and jaw pain.

Case Study 7
The front part of the upper jaw was repositioned downward and forward while braces aligned the teeth.
The front part of the upper jaw failed to properly grow forward and downward. This caused difficulty chewing, excessive wear of teeth, and gum problems.

Case Study 8
The upper jaw was surgically widened on the right side while braces leveled and aligned her teeth.
The upper jaw was much too narrow on the right side causing other teeth to become misaligned, and she had difficulty chewing food.

Case Study 9
Both the upper and lower jaw required surgery to correct asymmetry in 3 dimensions.
Excessive asymmetric growth occurred in the lower jaw causing it to deviate to the left. The upper jaw became vertically asymmetric as it adapted to the abnormal lower jaw growth.

Case Study 10
The upper jaw was repositioned upward and widened in 3 segments to align it with the lower jaw.
There was the excessive growth of the back part of the upper jaw and the upper jaw was too narrow to properly meet the lower jaw and teeth. The back teeth had excessive wear and she could not incise food.

Case Study 11
He received orthodontic treatment combined with the surgical advancement of the lower jaw.
The back part of the lower did not grow forward or downward, resulting in the open bite with only back teeth touching. This caused difficulty chewing.
