Prosthetic Treatment in Patient with Maxillary Cancer Disease

Ivan Gerdzhikov

Introduction Surgical treatment of tumors in oral cavity causes defects with different size and localization, which leads to problems in chewing, swallowing, speaking and breathing. Very common the only way of restoring these functions is by using prosthetic treatment methods. Objective The aim of the described clinical case is to follow the main stages of prosthetic treatment in patient with maxillary cancer disease. Material and methods A prosthetic rehabilitation of 61-years-old patient after operation from squamous cell carcinoma was conducted. As a result, a defect in the right side of the maxilla occurred. The treatment plan included the fabrication of obturator in upper jaw and partial denture in lower jaw. The impressions of both jaws were taken with standard metal trays and irresistible hydrocolloid impression material. The dentures were made by heat-cured acrylic resin. Due to the relatively small defect volume the substitute part of the postresectioned denture was fabricated with thick obturation part. Results The applied treatment method allowed successful restoration of patients feeding and breathing. Conclusion The prosthetic treatment methods are main methods and very often they are the only way for restoration of the speaking and feeding in patients with maxillary resection.
