Surgical Correction of the Cleft Jaw Deformity - On Demand Access
A significant percentage of patients with a cleft lip and/or palate benefit from orthognathic surgery for correction of their dentofacial deformity. Cleft orthognathic surgery is more challenging and complex than non-cleft orthognathic surgery due to the nature of the deformity as well as previous operations. During this 60-minute webinar, participants will learn the special considerations of the various types of cleft populations so they can appropriately plan treatment.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Describe the staged reconstructive approach to treating cleft lip and palate patients.
- Diagnose and plan treatment for jaw deformities in patients with a unilateral cleft lip and palate, bilateral cleft lip and palate, and isolated cleft palate.
- Identify special considerations of orthognathic surgery in the cleft lip and palate patient.
- Compare various bone grafting techniques during orthognathic surgery in the cleft patient.
