Successful outcomes in the treatment of surgical orthodontic cases rely upon proper diagnosis and suitable treatment planning. While traditional approaches have applied 2D tools for diagnosis and treatment planning, emerging 3D technologies provide powerful new tools to advance patient care, especially in cases involving asymmetry. This talk will provide a brief overview of surgical orthodontic cases while highlighting examples of cases in which 3D technologies present unique advantages.
Diagnose surgical orthodontic cases and recognize the limitations of 2D diagnostic approaches.
Recognize the advantages of 3D diagnostic tools in surgical cases involving asymmetry.
Discuss examples of the roles 3D technologies can play in surgical orthodontic cases.
