Alteración dentofacial de una paciente clase III y su manejo ortodóncico quirúrgico: Reporte de caso clínico.
Se reporta el caso clínico de una paciente de quince años de edad con maloclusión dental clase III, con deficiencia maxilar y prognatismo mandibular. La paciente consultó a edad temprana, por lo cual, se decidió esperar a que terminara su crecimiento y desarrollo para luego iniciar el tratamiento de ortodoncia con prescripción de Alexander (Ormco) ® y hacer solamente cirugía mandibular (osteotomía oblicua de rama para retroceso), lográndose la adecuada relación oclusal y balance facial. Se siguió el protocolo de atención de ortodoncia y cirugía maxilofacial para los pacientes tratados en los posgrados de Odontología Integral del Adolescente y Ortodoncia y el posgrado de Cirugía Oral y Maxilofacial de la Facultad de Odontología de la Universidad de Antioquia.
