Abstract

Silicone cosmetic restorations allow people with toe amputations to wear a passive prosthesis that looks almost identical to their real toe. These restorations appear so realistic that they are virtually unnoticed by others. The silicone prosthesis are able to restore the appearance of the lost toe and provide some passive function. The challenges faced by maxillofacial prosthetic patients range from a fear of social rejection to the economic burden of losing employment. This case report describes an effective approach of rehabilitation of a partially amputed toe using a custom made silicone prosthesis using ring structure for optimal retention and use of silicone prosthesis can fulfil patients esthetics as well.
