Objectives: To present a clinical description of the team's treatment techniques. Materials and Methods: In Part 1, 30 patients underwent segmental maxillary orthodontics, multisegment Le Fort I, and bilateral sagittal osteotomies of the mandible. Part 1 reported excellent occlusal stability at a mean follow-up of 49.43 months (range, 36-92 months). Cases presented in Part 2 were selected based on availability of excellent technique photographs. The same techniques described in Part 2 cases were used on all Part 1 patients. Results: The coordination of arch widths and forms, overbite, overjet, and maxillary curve of Spee corrections were stable using the team protocols for orthodontic and surgical treatment. Conclusions: In the study group, long-term three-dimensionally stable occlusal results were achieved. To duplicate these results, specific orthodontic preparation, intraoperative surgical steps, and postsurgical steps must be carefully planned and executed. These steps are described in this article, Part 2. (Angle Orthod. 2022;92:431-445.)

Abstract

Objectives: To present a clinical description of the team's treatment techniques. Materials and Methods: In Part 1, 30 patients underwent segmental maxillary orthodontics, multisegment Le Fort I, and bilateral sagittal osteotomies of the mandible. Part 1 reported excellent occlusal stability at a mean follow-up of 49.43 months (range, 36-92 months). Cases presented in Part 2 were selected based on availability of excellent technique photographs. The same techniques described in Part 2 cases were used on all Part 1 patients. Results: The coordination of arch widths and forms, overbite, overjet, and maxillary curve of Spee corrections were stable using the team protocols for orthodontic and surgical treatment. Conclusions: In the study group, long-term three-dimensionally stable occlusal results were achieved. To duplicate these results, specific orthodontic preparation, intraoperative surgical steps, and postsurgical steps must be carefully planned and executed. These steps are described in this article, Part 2. (Angle Orthod. 2022;92:431-445.)
