Abstract: A case of reconstruction of right mandibular defect due to surgical treatment of ameloblastoma is presented. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) data were used for segmentation and producing of prototype of the lower jaw using 3D printing technique. The prototype was used to shape a titanium plate in order to replace the resected bone. The aim of this work is to present and comment the possibilities for preoperative planning and virtual reconstructions using CBCT and 3D printing technology.
Keywords: ameloblastoma, CBCT, deformity, rapid prototyping
