Abstract Conventional two-dimensional imaging for assessing and treatment planning orthognathic surgery has limitations. Three-dimensional imaging offers the ability to more accurately portray maxillofacial anatomy. Three-dimensional CT-based models can be generated for assessment of the dentofacial deformity. Interactive software can simulate surgical moves and algorithms can predict the three-dimensional soft tissue changes that will occur. This will inevitably effect diagnosis and treatment planning for orthognathic surgery in the future.
