The use of computerized techniques to assist in the design of palatal and/or glossal prostheses is described. Patients with oropharyngeal resection and associated speech impairment are candidates for such prostheses. Procedures discussed allow for the design of some features of the prosthesis, such as shape, location, and tests of its effect on certain speech parameters, prior to actual fabrication. Advantages and current limitations of the techniques are also discussed.
