After studying this article, the reader should be able to understand the two basic types of implants for aesthetic augmentation of the jaw angles and the aesthetic goals in using them. The operative steps for surgical placement are described with emphasis on avoiding the common complications of jaw angle implants. The indications for the use of standard versus custom jaw angle implants are also described.

One of the most important concerns during posterior mandibular implant placement is avoiding the mandibular canal. Nerve injury can be very disturbing to the patient, possibly causing mild paresthesia...
Our aim was to assess the association between the angle of impaction of the third molar and the position of the mandibular canal on cone-beam computed tomography (CT). We designed a retrospective stud...
Extended mandibular defects can be safely managed by applying microvascular free bone transfer. The flap of choice for this procedure is a fibula free flap due to its anatomical structure, proper leng...
This 10-year retrospective study aimed to report implant bone changes in completely edentulous patients after a mandibular immediate loading protocol using two ball attachments.
Appropriate management of lower 3rd molars is crucial to successful treatment of mandibular angle fractures. A unique case of a patient who presented for initial management of a left mandibular angle ...
This study evaluates the use of short dental implants to support mandibular overdenture together with the use of laser therapy for treatment of patients with atrophic ridges. All participa...
The aim of this study is to assess the cost-effectiveness of the mandibular overdenture retained by one and two implants and the mandibular fixed prosthesis retained by four implants, base...
To evaluate the clinical success, stability, radiographic bone level changes and peri-implants soft tissue parameter of the SLActive surface implant supporting single crowns restorations i...
The aim of this study is to assess the cost-effectiveness of the mandibular overdenture retained by one and two implants, based on a randomized clinical trial.
The aim of the study to evaluate the effect of customized V pattern plate fixation versus a conventional superior-inferior mini plates fixation of mandibular angle fracture on patient sati...
Sagittal sectioning and repositioning of the ramus of the MANDIBLE to correct a mandibular retrusion, MALOCCLUSION, ANGLE CLASS III; and PROGNATHISM. The oblique sectioning line consists of multiple cuts horizontal and vertical to the mandibular ramus.
Scattering of a beam of electromagnetic or acoustic RADIATION, or particles, at small angles by particles or cavities whose dimensions are many times as large as the wavelength of the radiation or the de Broglie wavelength of the scattered particles. Also know as low angle scattering. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed) Small angle scattering (SAS) techniques, small angle neutron (SANS), X-ray (SAXS), and light (SALS, or just LS) scattering, are used to characterize objects on a nanoscale.
Bone lengthening by gradual mechanical distraction. An external fixation device produces the distraction across the bone plate. The technique was originally applied to long bones but in recent years the method has been adapted for use with mandibular implants in maxillofacial surgery.
Congenital open-angle glaucoma that results from dysgenesis of the angle structures accompanied by increased intraocular pressure and enlargement of the eye. Treatment is both medical and surgical.
Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
