A maxillofacial restoration is a prosthesis that replaces a part of the face with artificial materials. An orbital restoration for instance includes the eye, lids, lashes and sometimes brow.
Most patients who require a maxillofacial restoration have suffered from cancer. The fitting and fabrication process takes several visits. The prosthesis are retained with special effects adhesive or implants placed by the physician.
