With the technology of the computer aided design and computer aided manufacture (CAD/CAM), the new era for diagnosis and treatment for facial prostheses has been started since the 1990's. The digital diagnosis and treatment system for facial prostheses has been formed during these ten years, which including the digital data acquisition of the facial defect, CAD for facial prostheses, rapid fabrication of the prostheses. This new system will be the development direction and mainstream technology in the future.
