Planning for surgery

October 9, 2019

When you are ready for your operation, you will again be seen on a joint orthognathic surgery clinic for your team to discuss with you once more your expectations and proposed surgical movements.

Planning continues with the production of surgical plastic wafers that fit over and between the teeth guiding your surgeon at the time of surgery.

To make these wafers you will need some further moulds of your teeth, facial measurements and, in some cases, a 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scan is required.

A CBCT scan is a low-dose x-ray examination, which produces a very precise 3D image of your teeth and bony facial structures.

Could you be covered?
