Abstract

Three-dimensional virtual surgery programs are widely available for orthognathic surgery. The advent of imaging software programs has proved to be useful for diagnosis, treatment planning, outcome measurement, and three-dimensional surgical simulation. Complex maxillofacial malformations continue to present challenges in analysis and correction beyond modern technology. Orthomorphic correction for mandibular dysmorphology refers to basal bone movement without any change in dental component. The purpose of this paper is to present a virtual surgery planning for surgeons to perform the orthomorphic surgery with precision and quantification. Moreover, it provides an essential educational tool for patients to foresee predicted surgical outcome.
