Mandibular Surgery

Vertical Osteotomy (IVRO)

IVRO vertically cuts the posterior part of the lower jaw, which naturally places joints in appropriate position without any artificial fixation.

BEFORE

Malocclusion and Protruded Mouth

SURGERY

Vertically fracture and move jawbone inwards

AFTER

Shortened chin and correction of mouth protrusion

Advantages Disadvantages
– Since bones are not fixed, customers undergo low levels of jaw joint abnormality and pain.
– Low probability of nerve damage.
– Shorter operation time than SSRO.
– Since bones are not fixated, two week period of mouth tie is required for stable healing.
– 1-2 weeks of physical therapy is necessary for recovery of jaw.
– Thorough follow-up is necessary to prevent malocclusion.

SSRO

SSRO is a popular surgical method that fractures back of the lower jaw into two pieces where jawbone is retracted and then fixed with plates or wires.

Prognathic Jaw with Malocclusion

SURGERY

AFTER

Shortened chin and correction of mouth protrusion

Advantages Disadvantages
-Completely fixed bone and no tying enables fast recovery.
– Safe recovery due to stable fixation
– Bone fixation demonstrates low margin of error malocclusion
– Bone fixation can cause strain on the joints.
– Risk of nerve damage.
– Longer operation time than IVRO.

Double Jaw Surgery

If the prognathic jaw accompanies malocclusion with an imbalanced upper and lower jaw,
a varying degree of double jaw surgery can be performed to solve the symptoms.
