Functional Approaches to Oral-Maxillo-facial Restoration
Dentistry Journal. 2018, V. 8, n. 7, p. 1-4
Fecha de publicación
Several lesions or pathologies alter the symmetry, anatomical morphology and facial physiology of the patient affecting their quality of life; therefore they need to be adequately repaired. Customized prosthetic devices allow proper correction of these alterations through surgical interventions. Thus it is important to develop protocols aimed to design the prosthesis considering the anatomical parameters of the patient, its placement and the comprehensive approach to each case. Tissue engineering proposes new strategies for regeneration or replacement of tissues or organs, restoring the shape and function to the affected area. Many therapeutic approaches are based on stem cells since they could make the difference in promoting tissue acceleration and regeneration in clinical practice. With the prospect of being implemented in the field of oral-maxillofacial reconstruction, these developments could have positive effects on patient´s care, impacting on population health.
