만약 혀 절제술로 인해 식괴의 형성 및 이동에 장애가 생기는 경우, 식괴가 기도를 막거나 기도로 흡인되는 연하장애가 발생할 수 있으며, 이런 경우에 구개 증대 보철물은 도움이 될 수 있다. 구강암으로 인해 부분 혀 절제술을 받은 후 음식물을 삼키기 어렵다는 주소로 내원한 환자에게 혀의 기능 운동을 인기한 상악의 연마면 인상채득을 통해 구개 증대 보철 개념을 활용한 상악 총의치를 제작하여, 구개-혀 접촉 압력을 증가시켜서 연하 및 발음에 양호한 결과를 얻을 수 있었다.
If complication arises after glossectomy which leads to trouble in forming food bolus or transfer of the food, it is possible that either food bolus may block the airway or dysphagia may occur as the food bolus goes down into the airway. To solve the issue, palatal augmentation prosthesis could be used. In this case, the patient with an oral cancer is having difficulties swallowing food after glossectomy. Through taking impressions of polishing surface of his denture referring his tongue movement, the complete denture for the upper jaw was created using the concept of palatal augmentation prosthesis. This new upper denture increases the palatal-tongue contact pressure, allowing the patient to perform better swallowing and better pronunciation.
