WildLife Group of the SAVA To ensure the best decision for Claude was made, Doctors Steenkamp and Koeppel consulted with a Pretoria-based maxillofacial surgeon, Dr Frits Hoogendijk and the options for Claude was discussed. With his age in mind and the type of malalignment present, the team decided that Claude’s lower jaw had to be lengthened. This had to be done to precision, as the teeth still needed to interlock with each other in a manner that will provide Claude with a comfortable but functional bite. Since no orthodontics would be possible before and after the surgery, the goal was to create a comfortable but functional bite for Claude in a single procedure.
