  • Abstract

    The rehabilitation of patients requiring not only the replacement of missing body part but also a loss of psychological confidence is a challenging task. Since maxillofacial defects lie on the face, the materials used for fabricating the prosthesis should fulfill a variety of requirements. At present, there is no ideal material which can be universally used. This article discusses materials available for the fabrication of maxillofacial prosthesis.
