One of the most challenging complications in maxillofacial prosthetics is the rehabilitation of the patient who has lost all or a part of the tongue. Such patients have difficulties with deglutition, mastication, speech and saliva control. Dysfunction in swallowing is also a problem, and it often contributes to nutritional deficiency.
