An extraoral prosthesis acts like a cosmetic bandage that camouflages surgical defects. With regard to esthetic concerns, the most important feature of prostheses is the natural appearance (size, shape and color) that helps enhancing the patient’s confidence. Material used is mostly “silicone” with high degree of flexibility and cosmetic advantages which the satisfaction of individual patient plays a major role. The assembly process, compared to intraoral ones, takes less time with average 2-4 weeks.
