Often many patients cannot be treated by orthodontics alone, and need the combined efforts of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. Such patients are treated in three phases- a phase of pre surgical orthodontics that involves basically decompensating the dentition, followed by the surgery, which is then finished with final detailing of the occlusion. This article is a case report of a skeletal bimaxillary protrusion patient, who was treated with bi- jaw surgery.
