The aim of the talk is to present the current methods of orthognathic planning, highlighting the advantages, disadvantages and validity of the systems that are in routine use.

The different methods of obtaining three dimensional skeletal, soft tissue and dentition will be explained, indicating the rational for the use of each. The feasibility of building a virtual patient-specific model by superimposing the virtual component parts i.e. a photo-realistic 3D soft tissue model, underlying bone and dentition, in the correct relationship will be discussed. The use of this data in the development of a 3D prediction model, both virtual and physical will be shown together with selected case examples. Finally, the exciting future of 4D imaging will be demonstrated and its potential future uses discussed.
