Two-dimensional cephalometric analysis has been used for diagnosis and treatment of correction of mandibular asymmetry by many maxillofacial surgeons. And 2D analysis showed excellent results in many cases, however 2D has some drawbacks in diagnosis and treatment planning because of its fundamental limitation like overlapping. Today many physicians use 3D diagnosis & treatment tools to expect better results and reduce possible errors. The aim of this report is to present treatment procedures using 3D analysis and treatment modalities for mandibular asymmetry patients.
