Palatal Obturators Jupiter FL
Palate issues can be highly problematic for the patient’s ability to speak and swallow. Working with our team at Roy C. Blake III, DDS, MSD, Maxillofacial Prosthodontist, we can improve your speech and ability to properly chew and swallow with the fitting of an obturator following maxillectomy or palatectomy surgery. For many patients, a regular dental appliance would be almost impossible, so Dr. Roy Blake can create a specialized obturator that will give you the support needed.
An obturator is a maxillofacial prosthesis that restores the palate by providing aid in the patient’s function allowing for improved speaking, chewing, and swallowing. The obturator fills the void of palate tissue, substituting lost soft and hard tissues along with teeth. The primary goal of an obturator prosthetic is to assist the patient in preserving their remaining teeth and tissue while providing elevated function, comfort, and improved aesthetics.
When having an obturator placed the treatment process generally involves:
Treatment is based on each patient’s individual needs, we will work with the patient, and sometimes other medical professionals, to ensure the patient is having their needs met.
