La distraction osseuse symphysaire : revue de la littérature et cas clinique

Abstract : Originally, osteogenesis distraction was used by orthopedic surgeons in limb lengthening. Guerrero, in the 90’s, applied this technique to mandibular symphysis in order to correct dental crowding by inferior dental arch expansion, which is usually exposed to frequent relapses. In this way mandibular symphyseal distraction offers a therapeutic alternative and the advantage of avoiding dental extractions. However, this technique is still considered invasive and unsafe, and did not gain acceptance among orthodontists. By analysing research data, this work endeavours to clarify indications, protocol management, feasible spacing, and procedure-related risks so as to determine if this symphyseal osteogenesis distraction may be included in our palette of therapeutic care.
