About this case
Danice is an older case from years ago. The reason Dr Defrancq wants to show Danice, is that it is one of the most explicit examples of a true upper jaw prognathism that he has seen through the years. A major setback of the upper jaw was mandatory (Le Fort I) as well as an exceptional transversal narrowing of this jaw. Nevertheless a lower jaw advancement (BSSO), as well as a genioplasty advancement were needed.
