Prof. Nagi Abou Chebel, specialist in Maxillofacial & Orthognathic Surgery, will be our next guest speaker for the upcoming scientific evening event which will be held on Tuesday April 23, 2019 at 7:30pm- LDA Headquarters.
(Dr. Ziad Noujeim apologized for not being able to lecture at this date).

The title of the presentation will be “Surgical Approach in Sagittal Discrepancies”. As usual, the duration of the session will be of 50mns followed by 10mns of questions.

Sagittal discrepancies are the most frequent complaints among orthodontic and orthognathic patients.
The surgical treatment can go from a genioplasty, to one jaw, to double jaw surgery with clockwise or counterclockwise rotation.
During this presentation, we will review the indication of each of the surgical options, and discuss the orthodontic preparation needed for each.

Looking forward to meeting you all at this evening.

The Lebanese Orthodontic Society is a professional society of educationally qualified orthodontic specialists dedicated to promoting the art and science of orthodontics and dento-facial orthopedics in the Lebanese territories and around the world.

It contributes to the improvement of the oral-dental health by participating in the continuing education of its members, and by encouraging the development of scientific research in the field of orthodontics.

The cost of braces can vary depending on the type of braces, where you buy yourbraces, and the required procedures for fitting.

Orthodontics truly began developing in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. In 1728, French dentist Pierre Fauchard, who is often credited with inventing modern orthodontics, published a book entitled "The Surgeon Dentist" on methods of straightening teeth.
