Maxillofacial Implants

Maxillofacial Implants

Osseo integrated implants can be placed by a maxillofacial surgeon in various sites in the facial bones to hold a facial prosthesis after ablative trauma or cancer surgery that leaves the patients with a cosmetic defect of the facial structures.

Prosthesis is often used to replace a missing ear, nose or partial defects in the jaws, which are filled with obturators which is a specialized denture or prosthesis. This specialised maxillofacial surgery may require input from a prosthodontics specialist as well as an ear, nose and throat surgeon.
