Abstract: An essential step in the navigation procedure is the recording of markers required for the triangulation of the intraoperative navigation system. The aim of this study was to describe the procedure and preliminary results of a simple methodology for the application of dental markers to achieve good triangulation of the navigation system in maxillofacial surgery, highlighting the indications, contraindications, and possible limitations. We analyzed results from a sample of 7 patients with orbital or orbitozygomatic fractures, who were subjected to surgical intervention for the reduction and synthesis of the zygomatic fracture and from 1 case of untreated orbital fracture with enophthalmos and diplopia. We used 2 different types of dental markers: in 3 patients, we used 4 or 5 ordinary orthodontic brackets, which we placed on their upper maxillary teeth, and in 1 patient, the hexagonal-headed screws used in osteosynthesis. The accuracy of the recording was assessed during surgery by checking healthy anatomic structures against computed tomographic images. By analyzing our clinical results in light of the most recent literature, we highlighted that the application of dental markers is comparable with the best recording systems requiring a discrepancy of less than 1 mm. From the preliminary clinical analysis of the results, we confirm that the introduction of this new and simple procedure enables the successful triangulation of the navigation system, which can be used whenever the use of a navigator is required.
