Improved strength with lower profile*

  • Both the 2.0mm and 2.5mm thick Patient Specific Plates for Mandible have improved fatigue life over the 2.5mm MatrixMANDIBLE flat plates.
  • 2.0mm thick plates offer greater strength with lower profile as compared to 2.5 mm thick MatrixMANDIBLE flat plates.
  • Patient Specific Plates for Mandible eliminate induced mechanical stress from bending plates in the OR.

Drill hole alignment optimized with ProPlan CMF surgical guides**

  • When designed in conjunction with PROPLAN CMF planning services the Patient Specific Plate for Mandible plate holes can be aligned to the drill holes in the surgical guides, for a seamless transfer of the plate to the reconstruction site.
