What is a Maxillofacial Prosthodontist?
A Maxillofacial Prosthodontist is a dental specialist who has an additional year of training beyond Prosthodontics. He works with cancer, trauma, and congenital defect patients to help replace missing parts of their anatomy, and cancer patients receiving radiation and/or chemotherapy to help them deal with the mouth sores that develop.
Maxillofacial Prosthodontists make things like artificial eyes, ears, noses, jaws, augmentation implants for the face, breast, or any other part of the body where there is a defect. They also assist with cleft palate patients to help them gain normal speech function.
