Abstract

PROSTHETIC REHABILITATION OF PATIENT WITH SUBTOTALMAXILLECTOMY AND ORBITAL EXENTERATION

Mohammed Hilal S, Kalavathy N, Hariprasad A

Orbital exenteration presents a unique challenge to the maxillofacial prosthodontist. Prosthetic rehabilitation of the orbit is often complicated by the extent of resection, tissue response and the method of retention. Loss of an eye due to trauma or disease resulting in facial defect has a crippling effect on patients psychology. The placement of good prosthesis serves as a great psychological, social and cosmetic benefit in rehabilitation of the patient. The article discusses the prosthetic rehabilitation in an elderly male patient with orbital defect.
