Treatment of an ill-defined mandibular angle is a complicated problem. Augmentation of the mandibular angle has been performed with alloplastic implants, orthognathic proceures, rhytidectomy and liposculpturing techniques, bone splitting and bone grafting techniques, and distracion osteogenesis (DO). DO was successfully used for the first time by… CONTINUE READING
