Head and Neck Cancer

Cancers that affect the head and neck can have a serious effect on the oral and nasal cavities, the sinuses, throat and other vital areas.  We’ve treated many patients who have been affected by head and neck cancer and need specialized prosthetics as a result.  Two of the most common types of prosthetics we provide are custom facial prosthetics and custom intraoral prosthetics.

As head and neck cancer can affect the external tissues of the ears, nose and eyes, as well as the jaw, teeth, gums, pallet, prosthetic are often needed to restore the function and appearance of these features following treatment.  Creation and placement of these prosthetics is one of our specialties.

We helped many patients with complete prosthetics which contribute to full recovery from head and neck cancer.  Our objective is to help patients regain a sense of normalcy and renewal as they move beyond the effects of cancer.  If you or someone you know is in need of custom prosthetics due to injury or the effects of head and neck cancer, please call us directly and arrange a consultation.  Images of our custom facial prosthetic work and our custom intraoral prosthetic work can be found right on our website.
