About this case

Mick is a special boy, always happy and optimistic, and very musical. The accordion is his live, and after the finish of his treatment he came to our consultation and played accordeon for the whole unit. So grateful, optimistic and eternally laughing. A wonderful boy. The surgery was very much rewarding for him. Thanks Mick and all our love. The planning started with the surgical widening of the upper jaw and this through SARPE - smile distractor (Titamed®). then followed the orthodontic treatment, and finally the orthognatic surgery: Le Fort I intrusion anterior but even more in the back, so the open bite could be closed in a secure and skeletal way. For facial harmonisation reasons a substantial chin lengthening was realised during the same surgery..
