Normal facial appearance is one of the inherent human traits, which if altered or lost, challenges the patient's physical, psychological and mental well-being as well as maxillofacial prosthodontics' ingenuity. Maxillofacial prostheses, which restore and replace stomatognathic and associated facial structure with artificial substitute, aim to improve the quality of life along with the mental satisfaction.
