Abstract

This is a case report about an adult female patient with bilateral idiopathic condylar resorption. Extraoral check revealed obvious convex profile with retruded chin, lip incompetence; intraoral check revealed class I malocclusion with moderate crowding. Owing to the bilateral condylar resorption, the condyle position may not be easily hold during operation; besides, trying to maintain the integrity of whole mandible to avoid post treatment relapse. The final treatment plan was orthodontic treatment combined with LeFort I osteotomy. After post-surgical active retention for 1 year, final results showed improved facial profile. The half-year post-treatment follow up revealed up acceptable treatment result with mild relapse.
