I don't think so, I didn't facepull not YETDid your maxilla get vertically longer from MSE? Didn't you also do facepull?
This cut allows for more sutures to be loosened?It can, but not much, maybe 2 mm ? I’m talking about the MSE “plain” (with no osteotomies): doing a Le fort 1 cut reduces the resistance and allows for a more effective protraction. By the way, I’m referring to an actual Delaire’s facemask.
Can you elabThe gummy smile is mainly due to bringing back the incisors with the orthodontics done to close the interincisal diastema. If that is not done then there’s no increase in the gummy smile
When you talking about relapse like 50%, you refer to Le Fort III or all types of Le Fort?yes, probably better since it gives much better upwards growth too along as the same saggital growth (assuming you used it for long enough) a lefort would give but to all the facial bones a lefort iii would and possibly more, and if iirc a lefort relapses like 50% over a few years while this probably wouldn’t nearly as much
