Definitive Maxillary Obturator Prostheses
Goal of prosthodontics is rehabilitation of missing oral and extra oral structures with restoration of normal function of mastication, speech, swallowing, appearance etc. Malignancies are common in oral region, which are treated through surgical intervention. Surgical intervention creates anatomic defect which forms communication among the oral cavity, nasal cavity and maxillary sinus. In such cases it is very difficult for the patient to perform various normal functions like mastication, swallowing, and speaking etc. Prosthodontic rehabilitation with obturator prosthesis restores the missing structures and act as a barrier between the communications among the various cavities.
