Restoring Important Functions With Maxillofacial Prosthetics

Specially made maxillofacial prosthetic pieces can make a profound difference in a person’s life. Used to restore a person’s facial features, and improve their quality of life, maxillofacial prosthetics are commonly provided for those who have suffered a debilitating trauma, or have serious congenital issues. Our practice provides a wide array of different pieces, depending on an individual’s needs. These can help an individual feel more confident, and they may help by contributing to a person’s regaining important oral functions. If you or a family member require a prosthetic of this nature, you can learn how they can help restore crucial facial structures, and dramatically improve your quality of life.

Prosthetic Support Can Help Patients Recover From Serious Trauma

A person who has suffered serious trauma, either because of an accident, or because of a health condition, may need to have facial features reconstructed. With the appropriate prosthetic, and work with dedicated specialists, it is possible for you to address deficiencies in swallowing, chewing, and even speaking. If you are engaged in ongoing treatments that involve radiation, a maxillofacial prosthetic can be created to serve as a shield, to protect you from potentially harmful effects.

Addressing Tooth Loss Can Provide Valuable Functional Benefits

Maxillofacial prosthetics are not the only prosthetics with rehabilitative qualities. Prosthetic support from your dentist can deliver cosmetic benefits, as well as functional ones. When it comes to dental prosthetics, many people may think about prosthetics like dental bridges and dentures as ways to regain their smile, without realizing they can do more. Dental implants can hold a restoration stable enough to allow you to feel more comfortable when biting, talking, and chewing food. This can make it easier for you to enjoy a fuller diet, and better health overall.
