State of the art Orthognathic Surgery 3D planning.
Over the course of time the use of three-dimensional tomographic technology has become a standard in the planning of oral maxillofacial surgery due to its great precision when diagnosing maxillary inconsistencies and predict the results of surgical movements performed on bone structures during orthognathic surgery.
As a result, both the patient and surgeon can discuss the details of the procedure before surgery, thus strengthening the communication between the two, consequently achieving a greater feeling of security and confidence throughout the process.
