Is it better to use patient-specific implants in orbital reconstruction? Or should you use preformed titanium mesh?
Which method is more accurate in terms of oral volume reconstruction? And which method boasts fewer complications?
On this episode of Dentist Brian Candy, I share the findings of a recent study comparing preformed versus patient-specific implants to address orbital trauma and explain what kind of implants I use for mild, moderately complex and complex fractures.
I go on to discuss another study in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery comparing the frequencies, types and hospital admission rates of head and neck injuries in subjects who practice different forms of martial arts.
Listen in for insight around the CAD/CAM technologies I am adding to my repertoire for complex reconstructions and find out why Liberty Oral Surgery is switching to TiUltra implants.
