The goal of the program of Maxillofacial Orthognathics is to provide information related to craniofacial growth and development, and stomatognathic function in order to develop basic knowledge and skills for the treatment of the patients with a wide variety of malocclusion. It also provides valuable information of diagnosis and treatment planning for orthodontic and orthognathic therapies of the patients with jaw deformities and congenital craniofacial anomalies.
Comprehensive care by a team of specialists including maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, speech therapists etc. is needed for the treatment of the patients with cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies. The Graduate Program provides the clinical education of orthodontics as a part of the multi-disciplinary approach for such patients.

Clinical Performances

In the Clinic, we treat a large number of patients presenting a variety of malocclusions to be assigned to group practice in order to gain valuable experience in diagnosis, treatment planning, orthodontic therapy, and patient management. Especially for patients born with cleft lip and/or palate and who need craniofacial and orthognathic surgery, we have clinical meetings and conferences for the comprehensive care through a team approach with maxillofacial surgeons, maxillofacial prosthodontists and speech therapists. We also provide supportive counseling to families who have members with congenital anomalies before the treatment.
