Craniomaxillofacial Implants Can Aid in Improving Abnormalities of the Jaw and a
Posted by Ajinkya on February 17th, 2021
Craniomaxillofacial surgery is a branch of medicine dealing with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the face. Craniomaxillofacial abnormalities affect the face, jaw, neck, shoulders, arms, and hands. Facial asymmetry refers to an abnormal profile of the face, which may cause difficulty in movement or appearance. Craniomaxillofacial dysmorphic disorder (CDD) is an example of craniomaxillofacial abnormality. There are several advantages to having implants rather than just having surgery to restore facial features. For one thing, it is quick and takes only a matter of minutes rather than hours or even days. This also makes it convenient for patients, as they do not have to leave the bed during the procedure and can go home the same day. However, before surgery, there are still things that the patient will need to do such as have a full night's rest and stay away from any other hard materials or food.
The craniomaxillofacial implants can also be placed with a little bit of discomfort, but since the implant is custom-made, the amount of pain will be minimal. Once the patient is done with the recovery phase, the recovery period will take only a couple of days or a couple of weeks. Once the craniomaxillofacial implants are replaced, the bruising should be gone and the swelling should have subsided. With this in mind, the person should feel good and pain-free after the procedure.
