A dynamic approach for the treatment of oral motor rehabilitation, using the interdisciplinary skills of the speech-language pathologist and the maxillofacial prosthodontist, is suggested. A variety of oral and oropharyngeal prostheses for patients with a cleft palate, oral cancer, dysarthria, and dysphagia has been reviewed. In addition, a new treatment approach has been described that may greatly enhance traditional speech-language pathology treatment.
