Treatment outcome in orthognathic surgery─a prospective randomized blinded case-controlled comparison of planning accuracy in computer-assisted two- and three-dimensional planning techniques (part II)

Treatment of dentofacial deformities and severe malocclusions with orthognathic surgery involves thorough preoperative planning. The planning is based upon clinical recordings, x-ray examinations, photographs and dental casts (Moorrees, 1995, Wahl, 2006). It is important, when performing corrections of the malocclusion, to simultaneously optimize the facial appearance in accordance with the neutral head posture (Downs, 1948, Moorrees, 1994).
