2D or NOT 2D? That is the Question! A Clinical Perspective on Orthognathic Planning with 3D Technology

Jan 24, 2016 10:00am ‐ Jan 24, 2016 11:30am


Although traditional 2D planning methods work well for many patients, the critical 3rd dimension is missing for planning asymmetry correction. Contemporary 3D planning software solves that problem in addition to providing the option to use rapid prototyping in creating cutting guides and inter-occlusal surgical templates. This presentation will explore the process of virtual surgery planning and its use in postoperative follow-up. The question of efficacy and value will be addressed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify which patients indicate the use of 3D planning
  • Describe the assembly of the various files needed for the planning process
  • Explain how the plan is used in 3D printing
