This case report introduces a treatment in mandibular prognathism correction by combining the surgery-first (SF) approach and clear aligners. An intraoral scanner (TRIOS 3, 3Shape, Copenhagen, Denmark) and a virtual setup program (OrthoAnalyzer, 3Shape) were used for treatment simulation. All clear aligners were fabricated using a 3-dimensional printer. The total treatment was completed within 3 months after surgery. An immediate improvement of the facial profile was obtained using the SF approach, and rapid and esthetic tooth movement was achieved using clear aligners. This case report demonstrated that the combination of the SF approach and clear aligners could be a patient-oriented surgical-orthodontic treatment method.

Sagittal sectioning and repositioning of the ramus of the MANDIBLE to correct a mandibular retrusion, MALOCCLUSION, ANGLE CLASS III; and PROGNATHISM. The oblique sectioning line consists of multiple cuts horizontal and vertical to the mandibular ramus.
An autosomal dominant disorder characterized by acrocephaly, exophthalmos, hypertelorism, strabismus, parrot-beaked nose, and hypoplastic maxilla with relative mandibular prognathism. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Sudden occurrence of BRADYCARDIA or HEART ARREST induced by manipulations of the MAXILLARY NERVE AND MANDIBULAR NERVE during a craniomaxillofacial or oral surgery. It is the maxillary and mandibular variants of OCULOCARDIAC REFLEX.
The stable placement of surgically induced fractures of the mandible or maxilla through the use of elastics, wire ligatures, arch bars, or other splints. It is used often in the cosmetic surgery of retrognathism and prognathism. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p636)
