Bone Reconstruction Planning Using Computer Technology for Surgical Management of Severe Maxillomandibular Atrophy

Academic Article


  • Digital imaging technology and refined software programs have significantly improved a clinician's ability to assess and evaluate anatomic structures and quantify both defect size and required graft volume. This article summarizes the computed tomography–based technology used in these applications to illustrate their current use as exemplified by computer-assisted planning and treatment of severe maxillofacial atrophy treated using both interpositional and mesh-onlay grafting methodology.
