Unilateral mandibular widening with distraction osteogenesis



Unilateral mandibular widening with distraction osteogenesis



Angle Orthodontist 75(6): 1053-1060



Mandibular widening with distraction osteogenesis (DO) has been shown to be an acceptable and stable treatment modality. Mandibular widening with DO is useful in relieving crowding and for restoring a rotated mandibular arch segment to its original condition. This is especially true when a patient has a unilateral medial displacement of the proximal segment of the mandible or a unilateral Brodie bite. This case report shows the application of mandibular widening with DO for skeletal reconstruction and prosthodontic preparation in a patient with unilateral medial displacement of the proximal segment of the mandible. The design of the osteotomy line and the placement of the distractor must be taken into consideration in a detailed procedure for unilateral mandibular widening of the mandible.
