Abstract Share this page

Abstract Internal defects of the nose result from congenital abnormalities, trauma, tumor excision, and complications of cosmetic or airway enhancement procedures. Since the nose is a prominent feature of the face, and nasal deformities present complicated reconstructive problems, the rehabilitation of this structure assumes great importance. Surgical and/or prosthetic procedures using intranasal prostheses, splints, or stents have been developed to improve both form and function. Intranasal prostheses, splints, and stents during nasal rehabilitation can (1) establish and maintain airway patency, (2) maintain tissue position, (3) reduce tissue contracture after surgery, or (4) support mobile tissue in the construction and retention of facial prostheses. Although techniques for managing common problems have been presented in this article, unique clinical situations will arise. Much of the execution and ultimate success of nasal prosthetics will depend upon the ingenuity of the dentist performing the service.
