Maxillofacial Prosthesis

Maxillofacial Prosthetics is a branch of prosthodontics that focuses on the rehabilitation of patients who have defects or disabilities that were present at birth or developed because of disease or trauma. Prostheses are frequently required to replace missing bone or tissue and to restore oral functions such as swallowing, speaking, and chewing in dentistry. In other cases, a face or body prosthesis may be indicated for cosmetic or psychosocial reasons. Prosthetic devices for positioning or shielding facial structures during radiation therapy may also be developed.
