Abstract

The general aim of this paper was to gain insight into the effects of maxillofacial rehabilitation in head and neck cancer patients using implantretained prostheses regarding treatment planning, implant survival, treatment outcome and quality of life. In R.Macedonia, this kinde of rehabilitation and research is very rare. This can finally contribute to improved rehabilitation of patients with head and neck cancer and to rise awerenes about the need of using implantretained prostheses regarding treatment planning, implant survival, treatment outcome and quality of life. Based on research done by Schoen (2004), we can concluded that, when following the technique described, a mandibulotomy can be combined safely with the insertion of implants in the ventral part of the edentulous mandible. We are about the first step in this area, hopefully that will develop proposed rehabilitation of head and neck cancer patients in Macedonia. Key words:oral ; Maxillofacial; rehabilitation; Head and Neck Cancer; patients.
