Surgery on malignant tumors in the head-neck region generally causes large tissue defects. Maxillofacial prostheses appear as an alternative for cases where surgical reconstruction cannot be applied. In previous periods, retention of the maxillofacial prosthesis has been generally made by using liquid- or spray-formed adhesives, adhesive bands, eyeglass connection, and hard or soft tissue retardations. Osseo-integrated implants used in treatment of edentulous cases are used for reinforcing facial prostheses and providing retention and stability.
