Considerations for Prosthetic Rehabilitation of the Head and Neck Cancer Patient
Evan B. Rosen, DMD, MPH, FACP
Prosthetic rehabilitation of the head and neck cancer patient presents unique challenges to providers as the patient's intraoral anatomy may be significantly altered as a result of the patient's primary malignancy or previous oncologic treatment history. Additionally, treatment with radiotherapy or systemic therapies may impact treatment planning options for patients seeking intraoral prosthetic rehabilitation.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Explain the cancer care pathway for the head and neck patient.
- Describe the implications of a patient’s oncology history on prosthetic treatment planning.
- Compare examples of intraoral prosthetics utilized for rehabilitation of the head and neck cancer patient.
