Dental predictions were inaccurate in both methods due to the effects of intermaxillary elastics.
This process may have been delayed in this case due to the routine intermaxillary fixation done for six weeks following the orthognathic operation with the aim of achieving adequate bony healing at the osteotomy site to achieve a stable occlusion.
(13) There are numerous methods for reducing and minimizing mandibular deviation resulting from discontinuity defects, including mandibular guidance therapy, intermaxillary fixation, resection guidance restorations, splinting, "swing lock" removable partial dentures and maxillary prostheses with a palatal ramp.
On the day of surgery, after local anesthesia was administered, the correct seating of the surgical template was checked in mouth and, asking the patient to bite the previously obtained silicon index, it was stabilized in its correct intermaxillary relationship through three anchor pins: a 1.2 mm diameter drill was passed through the three vestibular pin holes of the surgical template under irrigation with refrigerated physiological solution using the implant motor at 1000 rpm and the anchor pins inserted.
No intermaxillary fixation was applied at the time of surgery.
Occlusal function was greatly improved using class II intermaxillary elastics.
