  • Maxillofacial prosthodontics is a specialty of
    dentistry which deals with the rehabilitation of
    patients with acquired and congenital defects of
    the head and neck region. These range from minor
    to major functional disabilities combined with
    cosmetic disfigurement.
  • Maxillofacial Prosthodontists work with a team
    which may include ENTs, head and neck surgeons,
    prosthodontists, oral surgeons, plastic surgeons,
    neurologists, radiation oncologists, speech
    pathologists, anaplastologists, and various other

Intraoral Prostheses
  • Surgical Obturator Prosthesis covers the palate
    after partial or total loss of the maxilla (upper
    jaw) used after surgery to provide closure.
  • Interim and Definitive Obturator covers the
    palate after partial or total loss of maxilla or
    due to cleft palate restores teeth and gums and
    has an extension which closes the defect or hole,
    facilitating swallowing, eating, chewing, and

    correct position for speech.

Intraoral Prostheses
  • Palatal Augmentation (Drop) Prosthesis alters
    palatal position prosthetically for speech.
  • Mandibular Resection Prosthesis replaces a
    portion of the jaw that has been lost and
    restores gums and teeth for improved mastication
    and facial esthetics.

Intraoral Prostheses
  • Commissure Splint effective in association with
    surgery to reduce postsurgical scar contraction
    (microstomia) patients with scleroderma also
    benefit from this treatment.
  • Shielding worn during radiation therapy to
    protect intraoral healthy tissues and salivary
  • Maxillofacial disfigurement can be congenital,
    developmental, traumatic or because of ablative
    surgery. Such defects compromise appearance,
    function and render an individual, incapable of
    leading a relatively normal life and affect
    his\her psyche. As the patients quality of life
    is altered social integration becomes difficult
    and the expectation to return to normalcy
    collapses. The prognosis for a successful
    treatment outcome is dependent upon making a
    correct diagnosis and anticipating issues beyond
    the realm of dentistry alone.
