The use of three-dimensional, computer-generated anatomic models can be used in the diagnosis and reconstruction of a variety of craniofacial problems. They are readily manufactured from computed tomography scans at a reasonable cost with only several weeks of preparation and delivery time. Their contemporary value is in the preoperative treatment planning, intraoperative implant fashioning, and preoperative implant fabrication in appropriately selected patients.
