Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is an enamel defect and is often associated with the anterior open bite (AOB) and transverse maxillary deficiency. It is known that in such cases when AI and AOB appeared together, posterior maxillary impaction with or without bilateral mandibular ramus osteotomies is a frequently preferred treatment option. Virtual planning is more reliable rather than the conventional model surgery planning, especially for complicated cases. Usage area of virtual 3D anatomical models reconstructed from Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) data is expanding day by day for both diagnosis and surgical planning. The aim of this study is to present a patient with AI and AOB and transverse maxillary deficiency and management of this case with virtually planned two-segment Le fort I and sagittal split ramus osteotomies followed by prosthetic rehabilitation.
