3D planning for facial surgery
Optimal preparation for surgery - better functional and aesthetic rehabilitation
Surgical procedures on the skull and face require careful preparation. Ideally, 3D planning is performed on the patient’s individual 3D model before surgery. This allows different options to be tried out and assessed in a virtual operating room. This provides significantly more safety, because the procedure and the result of the 3D planning can be discussed with peers and clearly communicated to patients. With our computer-assisted 3D planning, you can optimally prepare for a complicated procedure in oral and maxillofacial surgery and take advantage of the advances in digitization in healthcare.
Plan bone rearrangements intuitively in 3D
The starting point for 3D planning in facial surgery is a computer tomography (CT) of the head. From the CT data set, we create a detailed 3D model as the basis for interactive 3D planning. This allows osteotomies to be performed intuitively on the digital 3D model. Bone segments can then be easily rearranged in 3D. You will use our intuitive measurement tools to assess symmetry and proportions. Appropriate fixation aids, such as osteosyntheses, bone screws and templates, can also be taken into account. Our 3D planning for facial surgery thus gives you more confidence for the upcoming surgery.
Also evaluate tooth positions and esthetics
Orthodontic aspects also play an important role in 3D planning of jaw malpositions. If an intraoral scan or a digitized dental impression is available, these can also be taken into account in the 3D planning. This allows the tooth position to be included in the evaluation of a jaw segement repositioning. From all your planning specifications, we calculate the head and face shape as it will look after surgery. This provides you with a comprehensive foundation for the functional and esthetic evaluation of all aspects for optimal surgical preparation.
