Jaw Tip Prosthesis

Jaw Tip Prosthesis

Inanimate substances placed in or on living tissues in the body are called implants. The prosthesis, which is worn in place of missing or deformed limbs and structures that are missing for various reasons and which functions in a way that mimics the limb it is attached to, is also an implant because it is attached to living tissue.

Prostheses are called by the name of the area where they are used, such as dental prosthesis, maxillofacial prosthesis, arm prosthesis, hair prosthesis. They are made of different materials such as titanium, gold, vinyl, acrylic, porcelain, rubber.

Jaw Tip Prosthesis

Chin prostheses are used to change the aesthetic appearance, to support weak structures and to fill the gaps in the mouth and jaw area, either congenital or acquired. These gaps can affect vital functions such as swallowing, eating, chewing and speaking, as well as disrupt the psychological structure of individuals in terms of appearance.

The fact that the tip of the nose and the tip of the chin are aligned and in harmony with the face makes the face look proportional and beautiful and contributes to the formation of symmetry. The most common condition related to jaw structure disorders that disrupt symmetry and appearance is a small and receding chin. When only the tip of the lower jaw is small without any abnormality in the position of the teeth or lower jaw, it is called Microgenia. Considering that the appearance of the jaw affects the appearance of the whole face, the negative effect of microgenia on the profile will be more clearly understood. The most suitable solution methods for the problem of microgenias are chin tip filling and chin tip prosthesis. However, chin tip filling is a temporary application that needs to be repeated, a permanent result cannot be obtained.

The surgical intervention performed in the form of implant placement in the area at the tip of the chin in order to give the chin an aesthetic appearance by eliminating the symmetry and harmony disorder caused by microgenia is called Chin Tip Prosthesis. Chin tip prosthesis is one of the most preferred surgeries (profiloplasty) and jaw enhancement interventions (genioplasty) performed on the areas needed to change the aesthetic appearance of the face. The results are permanent. After the intervention; facial harmony improves, symmetry is created, chin appearance is strengthened and the neck - jaw line becomes clearer.

How is Jaw Tip Prosthesis Performed?

Jaw tip prosthesis is a painless intervention that can be applied to people who have passed the 17-18 age limit and have completed bone development and have no problems in the tooth structure. Considering the complaints and demands of the patient, two-dimensional or three-dimensional simulations are used to plan the intervention and the possible post-operative image is evaluated.

Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, high blood pressure patients, those who use blood thinners, those with skin problems, those who have previously undergone surgery on the face should definitely inform the doctor before the application.

  • Prostheses / implants used; They are made of many different materials that are safe and flexible, in different sizes and forms (plates, spheres, blocks). Mostly silicone and medpor prostheses are used:
  • Silicone Materials; Due to their slippery structure, they can be easily inserted and removed from small incisions. However, due to the same slipperiness, they can move from their places and sometimes cause bone resorption.
  • Medpor Materials; Biocompatible Plastic Derivatives with Small Pores. Due to their porous structure, it is more difficult to insert and remove them into small incisions. However, due to the same rough structure, the possibility of displacement is low. In addition, due to its biological compatibility, tissue growth is faster, the risk of allergic reaction and infection is almost negligible.

In jaw tip prosthesis application; the implant suitable for the intervention to be performed is placed and fixed in the lower lip, around the jawbone, through an incision made between the lower lip and teeth or under the chin. The intervention is performed under general or local anesthesia and takes approximately 1-1.5 hours. In the first stage, a bandage and chin bandage can be used to prevent the implant from slipping.

Are There Risks of Jaw Tip Prosthesis?

Displacement and slippage of the implant can be seen in the near future after the jaw tip prosthesis is inserted. Although rare, temporary or permanent loss of sensation in the jaw area has been encountered. Although low, as with all medical interventions, there is a low risk of anesthesia side effects, internal bleeding, infection, pain and swelling. A corrective operation can be performed in case of a possible negative situation.

What is the healing time for chin tip prosthesis?

The healing process in jaw tip prosthesis application; It may vary depending on the method applied and whether any other intervention is performed. If no additional intervention is performed, the patient is usually kept under observation for one day after the operation, discharged the next day and continues his/her normal life. Painkillers and antibiotic support can be taken for mild pain felt after the application and against the risk of infection.

It is considered appropriate to rest for the first week. Heavy exertion activities should be avoided for a few days after the application. However, keeping the head upright and ice therapy (cold compress) will contribute to the swelling that may occur to go down faster. If the incision is made through the mouth, it is recommended to eat liquid foods that do not require chewing for 4-5 days.

After the operation, the stitches will dissolve spontaneously within 1-2 weeks, there will be no scarring and healing will be faster than normal skin due to the mucosal nature of the incision tissue. The swelling may last up to 4 weeks. The desired result starts to show itself within 1 month and is achieved permanently within 3-4 months.

In case of unexpected complaints such as abnormal bleeding, swelling, high fever, consult a doctor immediately.


What are the Prices of Jaw Tip Prosthesis?

It is not possible to give general information about the price of chin tip prosthesis. Because each application includes its own special conditions. The size and material of the prosthesis will change according to the patient's demand and need, which will affect the price. In addition, by the Ministry of Health; It has been evaluated that the written disclosure of aesthetic intervention prices will lead to unfair competition and it has been deemed inconvenient to share.

In my first meeting with Mr. Elad, I trusted him immediately. He is both a warm-blooded, friendly doctor and explains everything in detail and honestly. I am in the 1st month of my surgery. I had a bruise-free, painless process. I also already love the shape of my nose :) If you want a natural nose that is compatible with your face, Mr. Elad is the right choice. His team and himself are very interested. They do not think that the surgery is over. I can recommend my doctor with peace of mind. I thank him and his team endlessly.
