The approach to normality through prosthetic restoration will do much to improve the mental status of the individual. 2. 2. Physically, prosthetic appliances will improve the health and nutrition of the child. 3. 3. Dentally, a mutilated case of malocclusion may be averted by the use of bridges, and partial and full dentures.
