Implants in the back portion of the lower jaw, called Mandibular Angle Implants, can augment the jawline of individuals with a weak-looking lower jaw, giving a more chiseled look to the lower face and jaw. The implants can create a more angled appearance in both males and females and are customized on computer-generated models to perfectly fit the patient.
By using advanced 3D imaging to assess your specific condition, Dr. Cohen can simulate the outcome of proposed surgical plans and adjust any discrepancies before surgery. The 3D technology allows us to create a surgical plan with a level of accuracy not available with traditional imaging technology.
Made of silicone or other materials, and shaped like a saddle, this implant makes the process of implantation relatively simple, and its versatility provides a desirable addition to the tools for skeletal framework reconstruction of the face.
The satisfaction rate of mandibular angle implants is high and the complications are easy to manage. The procedure is often performed under sedation.
Dr. Cohen is here to answer any questions you may have about mandibular angle implants to make sure you feel comfortable with the procedure. Dr. Cohen creates an extensive pre-surgical plan so you can fully understand the degree of your jaw abnormality and the treatment process. Our goal is to enhance your appearance by achieving better facial symmetry – in addition to maximizing normal jaw function such as speaking, eating, and chewing.
