Acquired and congenital defects of the face create an unfortunate condition for an individual. For the individual to lead a comfortable life requires facial rehabilitation, thus a reassessment of materials used in the field of maxillofacial prosthesis seems desirable. The materials have traveled a long way from wood, wax, primitive metal, leather, rubber, etc. to the latest biomedical material such as polymers. While the new materials have exhibited some excellent properties they have also exhibited some frustrating deficiencies. We still are in search of a material comprising all the ideal properties so as to best restore a maxillofacial defect.
