A modified copy technique for obturator prostheses.
Optional Fields
Prosthodontic rehabilitation of patients following intra-oral surgical resection is often challenging for both the clinician and patient. With a general increase in life expectancy, it is reasonable that a definitive obturator prosthesis will need to be replaced at least once in the lifetime of a patient. The ability of a patient to become accustomed to such a new prosthesis is often limited by their increased age, and diminished neuromuscular skills and limited tissue support following surgical resection. The purpose of this paper is to describe a duplicating technique for obturator prostheses that has been adapted from conventional complete denture prosthodontics.
