Hi Paul:



I tripped across your question about jaw angle implants.  You absolutely DO NOT want Medpor jaw angle implants. They are hugely prone to infection when they are used around the mouth, your natural tissue integrates, and if they have to come out due to the infection, tissue has to be cut away. I had Medpor jaw angle implants, one got infected and  the surgeon described the removal as one of the most difficult surgeries in his career.   I eventually had the other implant taken out as I didn't want to walk around being asymmetrical.  The surgeon kept half my money.



I now have silicon implants - no problem whatsoever. If you search the internet, you will find surgeons who work with silicon implants.



Good luck.
