Surgery First Approach

Dear all,

I wanted to share this article discussing this approach which is a systematic review.

In summary:

As we are all aware of its limitations and of the importance of case selection, the two major advantages for this approach are:

1- The immediate facial and esthetic improvement which is reflected on the patient’s psychological status.

2- The accelerated postoperative tooth movement as explained by the “RAP” phenomenon.

I also wanted to add some selection criteria for this approach which were mentioned by the maxillofacial team in our school:

1- Class III

2- No crowding

3- Flat curve of Spee

Have a great weekend!
