The literature describes post-operative mandibular joint pain after bimaxillary operations or adjustments of the mandible. The reason for this is that after surgery, the mandibular joint is no longer in the original position. In order to restore the position of the mandibular joints before the osteotomy, the positioning plate is used.
- Pre-operative position of the mandibular joints can be restored after sagittal splitting
- Preservation of the central position of the mandibular joint head
