Orofacial Rehabilitation: The Impact of Maxillofacial Prosthodontics on Survivorship

Course Description

Maxillofacial prosthodontics integrates the basic principles of prosthodontics into a broader oral-facial application that spans beyond the alveolar structures. With creativity, the prosthetic rehabilitation possibilities enable patients to be “capable” of performing oral function. This lecture discusses how maxillofacial prosthetics can be employed to improve the livelihood of patients with congenital and acquired orofacial abnormalities and defects.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand what maxillofacial prosthetics is
  • Understand what survivorship is
  • Understand the role of prosthodontics within complex multidisciplinary patient care
