Orthognathic surgery

Orthognathic surgery involves a correction of the position of the lower and/or upper jaw. The desired post-operative position of the lower and/or upper jaw are virtually planned using 3D CT scans, clinical measurements and photographs. To translate the 3D virtual planning to the patient in the operating room, patient specific surgical guides are designed and 3D printed. These surgical guides that fit the dentition of the patient indicate the desired translation and rotation of the jaws with high accuracy.
