This case report presents the prosthodontic rehabilitation of a patient with a resected right mandible, caused by an accident. Right condyle, ramus, and the posterior part of ramus were affected by the accident. These structures were resected, and the mandible was positioned toward the surgical area and a facial asymmetry was occurred. The patient was treated with a bar-retained maxillar denture with a guide ramp and an implant-supported fixed mandibular prosthesis.

Fabrication of an orbital prosthesis is considered as a challenging procedure as compared to the other facial prosthesis due to the presence of inactive eye movements and the need of artificial hair in order to mimic eyelashes and eyebrows. Generally these structures are sewed or bonded in the silicone. However, deformation or hair loss is observed within time. This deformation is visible especially in the eyebrow. This clinical report represents a patient with an implant supported orbital prosthesis. Patient was not satisfied with the nature of her eyebrow that was sewed in the silicone...

The loss of an eye and the associated facial disharmony has major physical, psychological, and social consequences for patients undergoing orbital exenteration. A magnet-retained prosthesis with an implant has various advantages over both adhesive and spectacle-retained prostheses for reconstruction of the exenterated orbit.The author demonstrates one representative patient with our orbital reconstruction patients with magnetic implants, which will be applied to various maxillofacial prosthesis strategies in the near future...

Correction of orbito-frontal defects involves a multitude of surgical challenges, and requires careful and detailed planning. In the trauma setting, one must be prepared to deal with injuries to adjacent structures and be able to incorporate their repair into the surgical plan to maximize the functional and esthetic reconstruction for the benefit of the patient. Victims who have sustained trauma of the cranial complex in combination with mid-facial trauma, particularly involving the orbit, present a difficult scenario, especially when future ocular prosthetic rehabilitation is a concern...

BACKGROUND: Surgical resection of ocular malignancies can result in complex craniofacial defects that can be difficult to reconstruct with conventional reconstruction techniques. Craniofacial prosthesis supported by bone-anchored implants has evolved as a reliable alternative in such scenarios. METHODS: The authors describe a patient who underwent extensive facial resection secondary to squamous cell carcinoma resulting in significant facial deformities. A bone-anchored osseointegrated implant was used to perform facial reconstruction...

The eye is a vital organ and an important component of facial expression. Loss of an eye has a crippling effect on the psychology of the patient. Maxillofacial prostheses restore and replace stomatognathic and associated facial structures with artificial substitutes. The objectives of eye prosthesis is to improve the patient esthetics, restore and maintain the health of the remaining associated structures, consequently provide physical and mental well-being. The primary purpose of an ocular prosthesis is to maintain the volume of eye socket and create the illusion of a healthy eye and surrounding tissue...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Complete-mouth implant-supported rehabilitations are challenging because of the multiple surgical and prosthetic steps involved in clinical evaluations to assure passive prosthesis fit and optimal esthetic and functional outcomes. As a result, these rehabilitations are usually associated with substantial clinical time, patient discomfort, and high treatment cost. PURPOSE: The purpose of this pilot clinical study was to evaluate a novel digital approach integrating digital intraoral dental and extraoral facial scanning information to design and mill a computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) implant-retained prosthesis for patients with complete edentulism...

Various attempts have been made to transfer the transverse hinge axis and mandibular movement pattern to the mechanical articulator and to fabricate dental prostheses with the fewest errors. However, the occlusal adjustment of a dental prosthesis is always necessary to ensure a precise intraoral fit even when the facebow transfer technique is used in the cast mounting procedure. This is because the true hinge axis is not obtained when the facebow is applied to a patient who exhibits a variable mandible movement pattern rather than a single rotational axis...

Osseointegrated titanium implants to the cranial skeleton for retention of facial prostheses have proven to be a reliable replacement for adhesive systems. However, improper placement of the implants can jeopardize prosthetic outcomes, and long-term success of an implant-retained prosthesis. Three-dimensional (3D) computer imaging, virtual planning, and 3D printing have become accepted components of the preoperative planning and design phase of treatment. Computer-aided design and computer-assisted manufacture that employ cone-beam computed tomography data offer benefits to patient treatment by contributing to greater predictability and improved treatment efficiencies with more reliable outcomes in surgical and prosthetic reconstruction...

Maxillofacial prosthesis (MFP) can be defined as the art and science of esthetic and functional reconstruction of the facial bones, art because it uses hand-crafted and empirical rules, science because of its technical rigorism and its integration in medicine. MFP aims to multidisciplinary rehabilitate patients presenting with cutaneous and underlying structures defects, It also allows for functional speech and swallowing rehabilitation related to temporo-mandibular joint disorders. Whatever the origin, (traumatic, infectious ortumoral), surgical treatment of these TMJ disorders is usually not indicated in first-line...

BACKGROUND: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis in children often leads to facial deformity, functional deficit, and negative influence of the psychosocial development, which worsens with growth. The treatment of TMJ ankylosis in the pediatric patient is much more challenging than in adults because of a high incidence of recurrence and unfavorable growth of the mandible. CASE REPORT: This is a case report describing sequential management of the left TMJ ankylosis resulted from trauma in early childhood...

An adhesion is a band of scar tissue that binds two parts of the tissue together, which develops when the body's repair mechanisms respond to any tissue disturbance, such as surgery, infection, trauma, or radiation. Prevention of unwanted scar bands is of utmost importance to develop esthetic and healthy tissue. This article describes a technique to prevent the adhesion of the surgically reconstructed ear lobule with facial skin, using novel lobule separator prosthesis.

Daniel Alam, Yaseen Ali, Christopher Klem, Daniel Coventry
Orbito-malar reconstruction after oncological resection represents one of the most challenging facial reconstructive procedures. Until the last few decades, rehabilitation was typically prosthesis based with a limited role for surgery. The advent of microsurgical techniques allowed large-volume tissue reconstitution from a distant donor site, revolutionizing the potential approaches to these defects. The authors report a novel surgery-based algorithm and a classification scheme for complete midface reconstruction with a foundation in the Gillies principles of like-to-like reconstruction and with a significant role of computer-aided virtual planning...

Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a structural vascular abnormality in which the arterial vasculature connects with the venous vasculature without capillary connections. AVM confined to the nasal cavity is considerably rare. Blurred vision can be one of the associated symptoms. A combined approach of complete surgical resection with prior superselective embolization is the treatment of choice. Following resection, the reconstruction of facial defects, particularly in the nasal area, is challenging. The present study reports the rare case of a patient with an AVM in the nasal cavity, in which embolization, resection and flap reconstruction were performed...

BACKGROUND: Skin cancers requiring nasal resection may be surgically reconstructed and/or prosthetically reconstructed. Singular surgical reconstruction may be ideal for smaller defects in which the nasal bone and cartilaginous portions of the nose are maintained, but surgical reconstruction falls short of providing acceptable aesthetic results for more extensive nasal defects. Prosthetic rehabilitation, or a combination of surgical and prosthetic rehabilitation, is more appropriate for larger defects, but prosthesis retention can be challenging when adhesives are required on adjacent mobile and secreting skin...
