Abstract

Preoperative communication between the prosthodontist and surgeon is required for properly planning the surgical prostheses that are often indicated for maxillectomy patients. When geography or long distances preclude face-to-face consultation, electronic means of correspondence are necessary to minimize delays in the fabrication of surgical prostheses. This article presents a time-efficient procedure for facilitation of the necessary communication between the prosthodontist and surgeon before maxillectomy surgical procedures.
