Complex Treatment and Prosthetic Rehabilitation of an Acquired Maxillofacial Defect with Tumor Invasion: Brief Report
Background: A patient was evaluated with respect to the effects and results of a complex treatment
plan for complete dental rehabilitation. Several steps were required. Each step included immunological tests of
salivary biomarkers. Clinical and immunological assessments were evaluated on Day 3, Week 2, Month 3, and
Month 6 post-surgery. These evaluations guided the decision-making process with regard to preparation of a
Objective: The aim of the study is to evaluate the response of tissues and organs of the maxillofacial region in
patients during dental rehabilitation after maxillofacial surgery.
Methods: Complex treatment and rehabilitation involving cooperation between the specialists in maxillofacial
surgery, prosthetic dentistry, and cancer immunology.
Results: Long-term monitoring and clinical examination showed a direct relationship between the patient’s clinical
and dental status and the changes in oral fluid biomarkers.
Conclusion: The data revealed that the oral fluid biomarkers reflected the patient’s adaptation to prosthodontic
rehabilitation. Treatment and monitoring of a maxillofacial tumor patient could use biomarkers as a non-invasive
