    Conventionally, facial prostheses are developed using wax or clay sculpted patterns. However, recent technological advancements in rapid prototyping systems have shown noteworthy advantages in fabricating facial prostheses that contrast traditional methods. Selective laser sintering technology is an example of this type of technological innovation. This technology can be used as an alternative method in the fabrication of wax patterns for a partial auricular prosthesis. The utilization of this advanced approach greatly reduces manual laboratory steps by directly creating the wax auricular...
