Pre-prosthetic surgery helps to overcome the challenge of prosthetic rehabilitation of the patient including restoration of the best masticatory function possible, combined with restoration or improvement of dental and facial esthetics. Maxillary denture prosthesis fabrication should include thorough examination of the soft palate and palatoglossal arch anatomy. This case report emphasizes on high palatoglossal arch as a rare and new cause of loss of posterior palatal seal and thereby retention of maxillary denture with rational, treated by pre-prosthetic surgery, ever reported in literature...

Obturator is derived from the Latin verb obturate which means to close or to shut off. This definition provides an appropriate description of the objective of obturation in patients with palatal defects. The obturator is often helpful in improving the speech of individuals with partial or total velar defects i.e. cleft of soft palate. Soft palate cleft is one of the most common cause of velopharyngeal incompetence, which is the functional inability of the soft palate to effectively seal with the posterior and or lateral pharyngeal walls...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the anatomy and function of the velopharyngeal mechanism in musicians who experience symptoms of stress velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) compared to musicians who do not. METHODS: The velopharyngeal mechanism of 13 musicians, 8 with reported symptoms of stress VPI and 5 without, were evaluated using video nasendoscopy before and after 30 minutes of playing. All nasendoscopic recordings were rated by an external speech-language pathologist and ear, nose and throat surgeon for maintenance of velopharyngeal closure, type of velopharyngeal closure pattern, and velopharyngeal gap...

The posterior palatal seal area is defined as the soft tissue area at or beyond the junction of the hard and soft palates on which pressure within physiologic limits can be applied by a removable complete denture to aid in its retention. The retention of the maxillary denture is affected by the extent and the design of the posterior palatal seal. This article discusses a method of defining the posterior palatal seal on a definitive impression for a maxillary complete denture by using microabrasion and a nonfluid wax addition technique...

Maxillary necrosis can occur due to bacterial infections such as osteomyelitis, viral infections, such as herpes zoster or fungal infections, such as mucormycosis, aspergillosis etc. Mucormycosis is an opportunistic fungal infection, which mainly infects immunocompromised patients. Once the maxilla is involved, surgical resection and debridement of the necrosed areas can result in extensive maxillary defects. The clinician is to face many a challenge in order to replace not only the missing teeth, but also the lost soft tissues and bone, including hard palate and alveolar ridges...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: The spatial relationship between the foveae palatinae and vibrating lines varies among individuals; such variability could be related to the contour of the palate. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relative location of the foveae palatinae and vibrating lines and to determine the correlation between the seal area of the posterior palate and the palatal contour with lateral cephalogram radiography. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fifty participants were examined...

Velopharyngeal dysfunction is the inability of the soft palate to affect complete seal with the posterior or lateral pharyngeal walls. Rehabilitation of these patients with palatal defects is challenging for both surgical and prosthetic fields of dentistry. The development of sophisticated surgical techniques and procedures has greatly enhanced the rehabilitation of congenital or acquired palatal defects. However, some of these patients may present oral or systemic factors contraindicating surgical intervention...

CONTEXT: Most of the maxillary complete dentures do not adapt accurately to the cast because of the changes in the resin during polymerization. The amount of heat associated with processing of polymethyl methacrylate has been correlated with the adaptation of the processed denture base to its supporting tissues. AIMS: This study conducted to determine the effect of different curing temperatures on the accuracy of fit of a complete maxillary denture and to compare with that of fiber-reinforced acrylic resins...

The maxillary sinus grafting procedure has proven to be an acceptable modality for bone augmentation to provide a base for endosseous implants, routinely used for the rehabilitation of posterior maxilla. Perforation of the membrane is the most common complication in this type of procedure. This paper presents a technique for repairing a perforated Schneiderian membrane with a conjunctive connective tissue graft harvested from the palate and shows the histological and radiographic evaluation of the results. Ten consecutives cases with the occurrence of membrane perforation were included in this study...

Understanding the normal anatomy and physiology of the velopharyngeal mechanism is the first step in providing appropriate diagnosis and treatment for children born with cleft lip and palate. The velopharyngeal mechanism consists of a muscular valve that extends from the posterior surface of the hard palate (roof of mouth) to the posterior pharyngeal wall and includes the velum (soft palate), lateral pharyngeal walls (sides of the throat), and the posterior pharyngeal wall (back wall of the throat). The function of the velopharyngeal mechanism is to create a tight seal between the velum and pharyngeal walls to separate the oral and nasal cavities for various purposes, including speech...
