Scope of prosthodontic services for patients with head and neck cancer

, : Scope of prosthodontic services for patients with head and neck cancer. Indian Journal of Cancer 49(1): 39-45

Patients with head and neck cancer face high morbidity due to the disease and its treatment and are affected on a variety of personal and physical levels. Maxillofacial prosthetics offer support for other disciplines in a multidisciplinary setting; can help to prevent / minimize the sequelae from disease and treatment, and offers the patient help in the rehabilitation process. Maxillofacial prosthodontics focuses on optimizing the disrupted rudimentary function of individuals whose rehabilitation will be a lifelong proposition. Normal function may not be achieved but optimal function should always be achieved and the patients can lead a near to normal life.
