Maxillofacial surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji expertly planned the complete jaw reconstruction. The affected portion of the mandible (lower jaw) was surgically ressected. A rib graft was harvested & used to reconstruct the excised portion. Miracle protein rhBMP-2 was placed. This stimulates the body’s own cells to form new bone at the site thereby ensuring complete healing of the bone defect.
Few months following surgery, remarkable healing of the jaw bone defect was seen. Implants were placed in the missing teeth region of the lower jaw and ceramic prosthesis were fixed. The man was very happy that his jaw bone defect is cured completely and with the implants he is able to chew & eat well.
