Whether you are looking for a midface or mandibular reconstructive solution or an implant to address aesthetic needs, our iD Solutions Facial iD portfolio is designed to provide personalized results for your patient. Implants are individually designed with your patient's CT data while you drive the artistry of the implant during a design session with a Design Engineer. Implants are available in a variety of materials depending on anatomical location, including MEDPOR, PEEK and titanium. Provide your patients with an exceptional anatomical fit and enhanced aesthetic results.
Our MEDPOR patient specific implants allow you to create the ideal implant design for your patient’s midface or mandible aesthetic needs. During an online interaction with our engineers, you’ll be able to determine the height, width, projection and overall shape of the implant.
Patient specific titanium plates are manufactured to the planned patient outcome, eliminating the time needed for intra-operative adaptation. Plot the location of every screw hole, select the profile height and bar width, and create a reconstruction plate to meet your patients’ needs.
In collaboration with 3D Systems, Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP) can be used to further enhance your patient outcomes.
Within our Facial iD portfolio we offer MEDPOR and PEEK materials for midface reconstruction. Each has a well-established history of surgical use, and offers you the flexibility to address your patient’s specific needs. If the procedure requires more detailed design input, you can take part in a online design session with our engineers and map out the exact placement, projection, and other aspects of the implant to match the needs of your patient.
The purpose of this paper was to analyze the biomechanical performance of customized mandibular reconstruction plates with optimized strength. The best locations for increasing bar widths were determined with a sensitivity analysis. Standard and customized plates were mounted on mandible models and mechanically tested. Maximum stress in the plate could be reduced from 573 to 393 MPa (−31%) by increasing bar widths. The median fatigue limit was significantly greater (p < 0.001) for customized plates (650 ± 27 N) than for standard plates (475 ± 27 N). Increasing bar widths at case-specific locations was an effective strategy for increasing plate fatigue performance.
