This article is to demonstrate a conceptual use of calcium phosphate cement in orthognathic surgery, promoting better stability and fixation of the segments. In orthopaedic surgeries this cement is widely used and in dentistry its use has been demonstrate interesting results. The calcium phosphate cement has been used in orthognathic surgery to improve the fixation and stabilization of the bone segments and to promote a better postoperative period to the patient using the same concepts employed in orthopedic surgeries. With the use of this material the postoperative results showed a better stability, a seal of the wall of the maxillary sinus and a reduction of the edema, showing why the surgical cement of the calcium phosphate should be further studied.
