Customised Facial Implants
Customised facial implants are designed specifically for each individual person to enhance their facial aesthetics and provide natural form and contour.
Facial implants produce optimal contour in areas of the face that have been impacted on by trauma, disease, misadventure, or one of any number of developmental conditions.
The material used has similar physical properties to natural bone, with a natural feel that integrates seamlessly with the structures of the face.
Custom designed facial implants
3D CT scanning of the face together with CAD-CAM digital design, enables us to precisely manufacture individualised jaw implants.
These have the specific dimension and shape to suit your existing jaw line, and are sculpted to optimise the contours of the face.
Custom jaw implants are made from medical grade zirconia or an innovative material called PEEK.
A 3D printed model of your facial structures are fabricated from the CT scan data. This provides the starting point to discuss the areas you would like to restore.
A wax design is applied to the model to form a template for the ideal implant that creates symmetry and desired jaw shape.
The final “wax-up” is then used by a technician through a CAD-CAM process, to directly manufacture a precisely contoured and fitting custom jaw or chin implant.
