It Is Easier To Remove Medpor Jaw Angle Implants Shortly After Surgery Rather Than Later?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I have Medpor jaw angle implants andI’m not satisfied with the result. I want them to be removed and I know it can be difficult. I´d like to know if we don’t wait long time after surgery can it be easier ? I’m just 2 months post surgery.
A: I have removed many a Medpor implant and really once they are in place a few weeks to a month it is about the same whether it is 2 months or 2 years in terms of the ease of their removal. It is all about how quickly do the tissues attach to the bone and form an adhesed capsule.
