In the before photo the maxilla is underdeveloped in width, length, & position. The mandible is deviated to the right-side w/ right condyle back. The upper left cuspid is blocked out.


In the after photo the maxilla has been corrected in width, length, & position. This allowed the right condyle to get back on the disk correcting the mandibular deviation. The upper left cuspid is in correct position. There has been no orthodontic treatment. Only orthopedic correction of the maxilla.


In the before photo the patients mandible is traped in a retrognathic skeletal Class II position by an underdeveloped maxilla. The airway is obstructed and both mandibular condyles have need distalized.


In the after photo the maxilla has been fully developed and the mandible distracted into the normal skeletal Class I relationship. The airway is open and the TMJs are normal.
