FACEGIDE provide accurate bone and tissue analysis, allowing precision planning for safe, predictable, and high-quality orthognathic surgery

MegaGen Implant Co., Ltd. (CEO Kwang-Bum Park, hereinafter MegaGen) developed a patient-customized implant guide using 3D digital simulation to improve the patient's mandibular defect and facial asymmetry.

In the meantime, most of the mandibular reconstructive surgery has been done with ready-made prosthetic materials. The patient-specific artificial mandible of MegaGen's FACEGIDE Reconstruction System transfers the CT data into 3D(STL), then simulates and designs the area that needs to be repaired in an ideal shape, then customized medical device is made for patient's application area through CAD/CAM technology.

With 3D CT superimposition and CAD/CAM technology, it is possible to elaborately produce implants guide. Preoperatively, the position of the implant placement is accurately planned to avoid nerve damage, and the preoperative simulation plan and postoperative results can be perfectly expected.

Biocompatibility and safety were also secured by applying pure titanium (Grade 4) as a raw material. Titanium is lighter than other metal materials, has high strength, robustness, good corrosion resistance. It’s widely used in dental implants and other dental devices because it has excellent biocompatibility. It prevents errors such as bone resorption or deformation after surgery, and good osseointegration can be done.

The product developed by MegaGen diagnoses the patient with 3D simulation without molding a standardized product in the operating room. It significantly improves the convenience and safety of surgery by producing a patient-specific implant that fits the defective area. It can be used in a variety of cases as below :
  1. When mandibular bone loss (trauma and operation failure) requires extensive restoration
  2. When mandibular dwarfism requires restoration
  3. When mandible repair is required due to oral cancer or other lesions
  4. When mandible restoration is necessary for deformation or loss for other reasons
MegaGen said, "Since the simulation and manufacturing technology of customized artificial mandibles can be applied in almost all areas of oral and maxillofacial reconstruction, it can be used for patients who need facial reconstruction in addition to cosmetic purposes.
