Introduction The injuries occurred after surgical treatment of tumors in maxillofacial area seriously violated breathing. Aim The aim of this survey is to follow up the breathing changes in patients with unilateral postoperative defects of the upper jaw, after prosthetic treatment with obturators, made of heat cured acrylic and rebased directly with silicone material. Material and methods In this study was included 15 patients (9 men and 6 women) with oncological operations of the upper jaw and prosthetic treatment by heat cured acrylic obturators, rebased directly with silicone material in the period of 2013-2016 year. For assessing the progress of hermetization in the area of the defect and breathing was used the device RhinoScan SRE2000. Results The described approach of prosthetic rehabilitation ensured optimum hermetization of post resection defects and normalization of the nasal breathing. The results of acoustic rhinograms have shown an improvement of breathing in all examined patients. Conclusions Prosthetic treatment with obturators, made of heat cured acrylic and rebased with silicon material, improves significantly the nasal breathing in patients with unilateral maxillary defects.
