A surgical splint with its individual negative dental impression defines a critical workflow-step in orthognathic surgery. It transfers the planning into a physical guide and in the same way also all the planning error and system deviation. Knowledge from our pioneer study with phantoms and ten clinic cases builds the fundament of this novel concept. It combines optimization in input modality, data preprocessing, GUI, user-interface, virtual planning and splint Generation. Our goal is to establish an integrated process chain that meets the need of the hectic clinical work. Future work is to realize this concept and a gradual adaption of this integrated process line for other patient specific implant planning application.
