Abstract

Once evaluation is completed, the problem list is made. Importance is given to patient concerns as well as to clinical and cephalometric analysis. Depending on the problems a treatment plan is evolved. Classifying the deformity helps in understanding the defect systematically. This is the first step towards treatment planning. Database helps to generate a problem list according to severity or importance. Surgical correction of facial deformity originally developed as an aid to orthodontics and used to be referred as orthodontic surgery. Later this branch advanced in leaps and the possibilities found expanded bounds. Surgery is now based on the architectural requirements of the skeleton and not solely on the occlusal requirements. Occlusion is classified according to Angle’s classification (Classes I, II, and III) and its subdivisions.
