Oral and maxillofacial surgeons utilize cutting-edge surgical methods to help them in their profession. CT and MRI scans, for instance, allow surgeons to see head and neck structure in three dimensions. The images may then be edited to build virtual 3D simulations that aid them in operation planning. Based on these models, templates and bespoke implants are created for each patient.
