Sri Narayani Hospital
Dental Surgery - Case Report

A 32 year old man from a rural village near Thirumalaikodi visited the Sri Narayani Hospital & Research Centre on March 6th 2006, complaining of proclination of upper and lower teeth. Prior to his visit to the hospital, he was under fixed orthodontic treatment by a Dental Practitioner, but because of the immense pain he was undergoing, the treatment was stopped and the appliances were removed.


 
 

Patient before treatement

At this stage he came to our hospital for further consultation and treatment. An oral examination was done on the patient with a lateral cephalogram and OPG. An impression was made and mock surgery was done in the cast. After further analysis, we came to conclusion that 60% of the proclination can be reduced by doing orthognathic surgery.

The patient was prepared for surgery and general anaesthesia was administered by blind intubations. A procedure was performed where the anterior upper segment was separated from the maxilla and the anterior lower segment was separated from mandible from canine to canine. Then wiring was done to fix the separated anterior segments to the maxilla and mandible; and a compression bandage was fixed over the upper and lower lip for immobilization.

The procedure took about two hours and patient recovered after half an hour. There was minimum bleeding for about 10 minutes which was drained. The patient was treated with antibiotics for 3 days, after which he was discharged. He was advised to return to the hospital for review once a week for two months for scaling after which the wiring will be removed.
