Dentofacial and maxillofacial deformities are common in the general population, ranging from mild abnormalities of the teeth to extensive and widespread deformities involving the entire face and skull. The incidence of maxillofacial trauma is steadily increasing, maxi11ary fractures being extremely severe. More extensive deformities require a surgical approach in treating dcntofacial and maxillofacial deformities. Typically, both the soft and hard tissues of the face, along with the teeth and bite, need to be considered in formulating a definitive treatment plan, which will lead to the best outcome. Here we report a case of residual deformity resulting in disturbance in occlusion, function and esthetics where a single piece osteotomywith a single semi-rigid fixation was performed to restore the occlusion.
