Abstract

prosthesis can be defined as- “An artificial replacement of part of the human anatomy restoring form, function, and esthetics”. Patients who have suffered maxillofacial impairment exhibit a compromised appearance making them incapable of leading a normal life. Such patients experience a change in societal acceptance that greatly affects their mental health, and often their expectation to return to a normal life crumbles. With sophistication in plastic surgery, aesthetic corrections of such defects is possible, but, if surgery is contraindicated or the defect is so extensive that full closure is not possible or if the patient is unwilling to expose him/herself to surgery, maxillofacial prosthetics appear to be a viable option.
