Definitive Obturators

The Definitive Obturator is a prosthesis made by a Maxillofacial Prosthodontist.  This prosthesis restores, bodily functions of speech, mastication, and swallowing to functional levels and can be fabricated once the tissues are completely healed.  The device is medically necessary to prevent the patient from being on tube feedings for the rest of their life.   This device is worn for the rest of the patient’s life.  Due to wear and tear on the prosthesis, adjustments, modifications, and relines may be required.
