Maxillofacial Implant Moulds


Maxillofacial implant moulds are patient-specific moulds that are used intra-operatively to produce a PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) maxillofacial prosthesis.

Please note that PMMA is not advised for load-bearing areas.

Once the CT scan has been converted to a virtual 3D model, the patient-specific maxillofacial implant is designed on the patient's defect. The affected anatomy and the prosthesis are then manufactured with the use of 3D printing. A two-part platinum based silicone mould is then made for the prosthesis. The moulds are delivered to the clinical team clean, but non-sterile. The mould is autoclaved and used in theatre to recreate the prosthesis with PMMA.


  • Perfect fit to the patient's defect with excellent cosmetic results
  • The most cost-effective maxillofacial implant solution
  • Reduces surgery time
  • Very simple to use
  • PMMA has the advantage of being inert, radiolucent and non-magnetic
  • Decreases potential complications associated with the use of PMMA
  • Fast turnaround time (5-10 working days)
