Abstract

This article evaluates the ability of 4th-year residents to accurately perform maxillary model surgical repositioning in the conventional manner. Using a special model surgery-measuring platform, measurements of the maxillary dental casts were recorded before and after model surgery was performed by residents in 20 bimaxillary cases. The model surgery was performed in the usual manner described in several texts, using reference lines scored on the casts and measurements made to the incisal pin and upper member of the articulator. Analysis of the differences between the planned movements and the postsurgical position of the maxillary model surgery casts showed statistically significant errors in maxillary repositioning for all measures. This indicates that the manner in which model surgery was performed by the residents, as reported in the literature, was inaccurate. A new technique and instrument for more accurately recording measurements and repositioning the maxillary cast is introduced.
