The Problem

Maxillofacial prosthetics denotes the specialty that designs and manufactures prostheses used to replace parts or all of any stomatognathic system and/or craniofacial structure.

The common and traditional method of prosthesis production includes taking an impression, manufacturing a cast, and ultimately handcrafting a prosthesis in a silicone-based or similar material. This method has shown some limitations, which are related to the processing strategy, and technical expertise, which takes a significant amount of time and effort, is costly and has retention problems.

Furthermore, there are durability issues due to material degradation and color fading after a relatively short period of service because of general wear and tear and exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
