An orbital prosthesis replaces the eyeball, and eyelids and may include skin area depicting an eyebrow, medial lateral parts of the orbit, nose, and some part of the cheek. The Ocular (eyeball) part is made from acrylic (plastic) and the skin part of the prosthesis is made from medical-grade silicone and customized according to the skin tone and skin texture of the patient.
These are the prosthesis used to cover congenital or acquired palatal defects after maxillectomy. Obturators help to cover maxillary defects thus preventing food from entering the cavity. It helps in swallowing food and improves speech. Definitive obturators contain teeth which helps in chewing food.
