Abstract

An orthosurgical technique comprising maxillary expansion using Burstone screws associated with multiple corticotomy, repositioning of the bone basis and pre- and postoperative orthodontics was used to correct two cases of Angle's class dysgnathia with involvement of both the bone basis and alveolodental component. The outcome was satisfactory in that a good esthetic result was achieved together with normal and functional occlusion which was stable over time.
