Hygienic home care maintenance for patients who have received a maxillofacial prosthesis is very important in order to secure a long-term success of a facial rehabilitation. Craniofacial implant therapy requires a specific protocol to care for the peri-implant tissues and material used for the prosthesis. This article presents the maintenance and care protocol for proper follow-up management of a maxillofacial ear prosthesis. Home care methods for the prosthesis hygiene are described, including: the insertion and the disconnection of the ear prosthesis, hygiene of the bar abutments before and after postdefinitive connection to the craniofacial fixtures, washing of the device, professional follow-up.
