Title:
Manufacturing splints for orthognathic surgery using a three-dimensional printer. 
Abstract:
OBJECTIVE: A new technique for producing splints for orthognathic surgery using a 3D printer is presented. STUDY DESIGN: After 3-dimensional (3D) data acquisition by computerized tomography (CT) or cone-beam computerized tomography (CBCT) from patients with orthognathic deformations, it is possible to perform virtual repositioning of the jaws. To reduce artifacts, plaster models were scanned either simultaneously with the patient during the 3D data acquisition or separately using a surface scann...    »
