Abstract
PURPOSE: This article aimed to report a clinical case of a patient, a 26-year-old, caucasian man, who sought surgical treatment due to esthetic and functional complaints related to facial features. METHODS: The initial diagnosis was a standard dentofacial deformity, short face, mandibular hypoplasia, deep mento labial sulcus, and Class II occlusion. RESULTS: Bimaxillary orthognathic surgery was performed using genioplasty associated with filling the chin with a polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) prosthesis to soften the deep mentolabial sulcus. CONCLUSION: PMMA was shown to be a good material for use as a definitive prosthesis that enabled facial harmonization to be achieved. PMMA has advantages such as stability, biocompatibility, easy handling, and low cost.
