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)
