Reconstructing defects of the oral cavity or face often poses a significant challenge to the surgeon. Defects of the oral and maxillofacial region can be closed with surgical techniques, with prosthetic constructions, or a combination of these techniques. Both defects of bone, soft tissue and teeth can be reconstructed with these techniques. The aim of reconstructing an oral or facial defect is to obtain optimal function and aesthetics which closely approximate the original form and function. Endosseous implants appear to be useful for retaining prosthetic constructions.
