Imaging Studies

When chin abnormalities are present, obtain additional studies. Perform a lateral soft tissue study, lateral cephalometric study, anteroposterior (AP) skull radiography, and occlusal panoramic radiography.


Other Tests

See the list below:

  • Obtain standard facial photographs.

  • In addition to the facial analysis, study dental occlusion and skeletal structures with the aid of preoperative photography as well as cephalometric and panoramic radiography.

  • If skeletal or dental deformities are present, order dental models to be fashioned.
