Botox as an adjunct to orthognathic surgery for a case of severe vertical maxillary excess.

Abstract

Large skeletal discrepancies are sometimes only minimised but not eliminated by orthognathic surgeries. Administration of Botox has been advocated as an effective minimally invasive procedure to tackle aesthetic compromises like gummy smile and the like. This article elaborates on the surgical management of a case of severe vertical maxillary excess with Botox as an adjunct therapy.
