Abstract

Facial prostheses are often fabricated for cosmetic and psychological reasons for patients with facial defects after tumor resection. Each case is unique, and fabricating a facial prosthesis that is tailored to the individual patient requires use of specific materials and a degree of flexibility. This article describes a facial prosthesis that was made using an Adams clasp and acrylic resin for an elderly patient with metal exposure after mandibulectomy.
