Eight studies fulfilled the inclusion and exclusion criteria, three of which reported on the same patient cohort. This small number of studies is acceptable, as few patients require such treatment. Three studies measured functional activity, such as the ability to chew peanuts, and five looked at quality of life with the use of questionnaires. Although there was no improvement in quality of life after implant prosthetic reconstruction, there was increased patient satisfaction with implant-retained prosthesis. In addition, there was a consensus that non-implant-retained prosthesis can successfully rehabilitate patients following maxillectomy or marginal mandibulectomy.
