          Abstract

          Reconstruction of the facial midplane is relevant in anthropometry, orthodontics, maxillofacial surgery, and the accurate measurement of symmetry deviation is relevant in many fields of medicine especially when planning surgical treatment. In the literature, three different means of midplane generation have been published; however, there is currently no consensus regarding the approach to use. Morphometric methods are used to determine the true midsagittal plane (MSP), but its use in clinical practice is difficult. A regression plane based on N‑ANS-PNS landmarks reportedly approximates the morphometric MSP. As these points are vulnerable, we investigated which combination of landmarks can be substituted in symmetric and asymmetric faces.
