Abstract: Maxillofacial prosthetic materials are classified in two main groups: extraoral and intraoral prosthetic materials. Among extraoral prosthetic materials vinyl chloride polymers, poly (methyl methacrylate), silicone, and polyurethane are discussed for use in facial prosthetics. At present silicones and polyurethane materials are considered most desirable for their strength, even though both are somewhat difficult to color. Intraoral prosthetic materials include silicones, poly (methyl methacrylate), Tantalum, T…
