Maxillofacial Prosthetics

December 6, 2016
Continuing Education Course at the Marin County Dental Society Meeting on Maxillofacial Prosthetics.

This was a very interesting course going over cases (or should I say stories) about people with facial deformities or injuries. The lecturer went over options for treatment as well as things to consider for people dealing with these facial deformities. We went over facial aesthetics as well, which is always helpful to consider features and ratios of the face that humans consider aesthetic.

We also reviewed some local anatomy as we do in most lectures. Anatomical structures are very important to consider in any surgical setting. This is why we review anatomy at every meeting in order to maintain our knowledge of the human body.
