Facad is a software program used for orthodontic tracing, cephalometric analysis, and visual diagnostic imaging, as well as for treatment planning with soft tissue profile prediction for both orthodontics and maxillo-facial surgery. This program is meant to be used by dentists, orthodontists and orthofacial surgeons.

VisiQuick is the official dealer for Facad® in Belgium and The Netherlands.

The software is developed by the Swedish company Ilexis AB in co-operation with the maxillofacial unit at the University Hospital in Linköping, Sweden. Facad has been in clinical use for more than 20 years and is available on Windows PC’s.

Facad is available in two versions:

  • Tracing Only version – the limited edition that includes tracing, cephalometric analyses, tracing of hard tissue and soft tissue profile line, and superimpositions.
  • Full version – also including usage of profile photos together with x-ray cephalograms, and treatment planning (simulating movement of teeth and bone segments) with soft tissue prediction and prediction photo.

Facad is available in English, Dutch, French, and several other languages.
