Identifying position, visibility, dimensions, and angulation of the ear

Kasim Mohamed, MDS, et al.

The article explains a method of assessing the position, visibility, dimension, and angulation of the ear of a specific facial form of an individual using facial plane landmarks and reference plane indicator. This would help in fabricating ear prostheses even in bilaterally missing ears so that the appearance of the patient will be better and reduces the work of maxillofacial prosthodontists. The present article is different from other previous study because it discusses all the variables required in ear prosthesis fabrication.
