Abstract

Patients with minor Oro-antral and oronasal defects can be treated by surgical closure, while the patients with larger defects are usually rehabilitated prosthetically. Patients with Oro-antral communication suffer from a variety of issues, including fluid reflux through the nasal cavity, as well as difficulty in chewing, swallowing, and speaking, all of which lead to a decreased quality of life. The aim of prosthetic rehabilitation for such patients are to fabricate obturator prostheses that seal congenital or acquired tissue openings of the palate, enhance deglutition, speech, mastication, and aesthetics, and greatly improve their quality of life.
