Maxillofacial Prosthetics Can Help Restore Oral Functions

For patients who have suffered facial trauma, or for those who are born with facial defects of disabilities, a maxillofacial prosthetic can have a tremendous positive impact. The creation of a prosthetic can help a person by restoring key oral functions, like biting and chewing, which may be compromised by facial damages or abnormalities. These prosthetics can also be crucial to helping children born without the full or proper development of parts of their face, which will require serious attention. Receiving a maxillofacial prosthetic can have a profound impact on a person’s quality of life, and on their oral health.

Receiving A Maxillofacial Prosthetic

Maxillofacial prosthetic treatment is used to help patients who experience serious issues due to problems relating to their facial structures. This can involve creating a custom prosthetic to address oral structures – for instance, a prosthetic can be placed to support your soft palate, and keep it in the correct position for speech functions. An extraoral prosthetic can also be used provided if you need to rebuild or restore incomplete structures around your mouth.

Counting On Expert Care For Issues That Impact Your Oral Health

Because your dentist’s office can provide dedicated oral health care, you can find it easier to enjoy the support you need. Patients who have advanced needs may feel frustrated by the sense that they must be shuttled from one expert to the next. Providing a range of services creates the capacity to help a patient struggling with problems affecting their oral and facial structures, while also helping them dealing with more conventional issues like tooth loss, and general restorative dental care for problems like tooth decay, or dental damage.
