Implant Insertion

This method is used when the chin is small, so the chin augmentation is not possible by osteotomy. The implant is inserted through two incisions of 1cm each inside the mouth.

Sometimes, the muscle contraction occurs in the chin, so unnatural lines are produced.

It is also used when the chin is not well developed. When there is a functional problem regarding dental interlocking, the teeth should be moved simultaneously, and a dental revision is also required. If it functions normally, the chin augmentation line is required in order to create a beautiful shape conforming to the beauty. There are two methods.
