Abstract

One of the most important factors that determines the success of a maxillofacial prosthesis is retention. The struggle to achieve adequate retention has reduced as retentive measures have evolved over a period of time. Increased retention provides comfort and confidence to the patient to go out in social settings. The journey from using metal bands to using adhesives to placing implants for retaining a maxillofacial prosthesis has been fascinating and satisfying to many, but, the aim of achieving the full potential still remains incomplete.

Keywords: Retention, Maxillofacial prosthesis, Adhesives, Magnets, Implants.
