Jaw Prosthesis

A jaw prosthesis is a type of artificial replacement for a missing jaw. This could be for a person who has had their jaw removed due to cancer or injury. The prosthesis is custom-made to fit the individual's face and is designed to help the person eat, speak and improve their appearance. It is typically made of acrylic or metal and is attached to the remaining bone structure. The prosthesis is removable and can be taken out for cleaning.
