MD Anderson Cancer Center Prosthodontic Lab Technician in Houston, Texas

The Prosthodontic Lab Technician in the Head & Neck Center at MD Anderson Cancer Center partners with our oncology and maxillofacial prosthodontic doctors to care for patients with some of the most complex cases of oral loss and reconstruction. Restoring what's lost due to cancer and cancer treatments often goes well beyond implants done at a local dentist office. Many times, the prosthetics made here include structures such as the roof or floor of the mouth. These sophisticated implants help restore proper air flow and enhance patients' abilities to eat, drink and speak. They also make fluoride carrier trays and radiation stents for patients undergoing radiation in the head and neck region. These stents protect tissues that don't need radiation and confine the tongue, making the treatment more effective and like the prosthetics, each stent is custom-made to fit the individual patient.
