Abstract

Although a silicone facial prosthesis has many advantages, silicone's limited cementation with resin or metal has caused many maxillofacial reconstructive surgeons and prosthodontists concern regarding the use of silicone-based facial prostheses. This study demonstrates 1 representative silicone facial prosthesis patient with magnet cementation to silicone using plastic clay, which will be applied to various maxillofacial prosthesis strategies in the near future.
