The maxilla is usually positioned during orthognathic surgery using surgical splints, which has many limitations. In this preliminary study we present a new computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) template to guide the osteotomy and the repositioning, and illustrate its feasibility and validity. Six patients with dental maxillofacial deformities were studied. The design of the templates was based on three-dimensional surgical planning, including the Le Fort osteotomy and the… CONTINUE READING
