Abstract

The number and complexity of oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures have increased markedly in the last 5 years. Various custom prostheses, both cast metal and acrylic resin, used to provide surgical fixation, stabilize skin grafts, and contour bone used to augment atrophic mandibles, were described. While these prostheses may appear complex, their fabrication in the dental laboratory involves standard techniques that are accomplished routinely. The complexity of the modality lies in the uniqueness of each patient's treatment plan, which requires a special level of understanding and cooperation by all members of the professional treatment team.
