About this case

Tabita has the typical features of a long face with retruded chin. She was most disturbed with her gingival smile.
During the Le Fort impaction the smile distractor (Titamed®) was placed and expanded. The chin was shortened and slightly advanced.The result, indeed, is very appealing.
