    SAN DIEGO (Dec. 29, 2020) A patient’s prosthetic denture and oral cavity are inspected in Naval Medical Center San Diego’s (NMCSD) Dental Department approximately six weeks after an immediate jaw replacement surgery Dec. 29. Surgeons and specialists from a multitude of disciplines assigned to NMCSD performed the Department of Defense’s and California’s first ever immediate jaw reconstruction surgery using 3D-printed teeth. A tumor-stricken lower jaw was removed from the patient and replaced with a section of the fibula. NMCSD’s mission is to prepare service members to deploy in support of operational forces, deliver high quality healthcare services and shape the future of military medicine through education, training and research. NMCSD employs more than 6,000 active duty military personnel, civilians, and contractors in Southern California to provide patients with world-class care anytime, anywhere.
