    Background: Surgical approach for treating cancer of the oral cavity results in considerable functional and cosmetic deformity. This results in impacting the patient’s sense of self and well-being. The mental status examination is a structured assessment of the patient’s behavioral and cognitive functioning. The mental health alters in the patient who places a high value on overall facial esthetic appearance. The study concentrates on evaluating the mental health status of the patients immediately after the resection of jaw and after the prosthetic replacement of dentofacial deformity. Aim: The aim of the study is to evaluate the mental health status of the patients underwent with mandibular resectomy. Materials and Methods: A study was conducted on 30 patients (males = 15 and females = 15) attending the OPD of Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals, Saveetha University, located in southern part of India, Chennai, Tamil Nadu. All the patients included in the study were with a history of mandibular resectomy from 6 months to 2 years. All the patients had willingly participated in 5 min Hospital Anxiety And Depression Scale survey. The survey was done for all the patients immediately after the surgery and 6 months after their prosthetic replacement. The results were statistically analyzed by one-way ANOVA, post hoc Turkey, and paired t-tests. Results: The results show that the comparison of depression and anxiety scores among the patients immediately after the mandibular resection and the scores after the prosthetic replacement was found to be statistically significant P value (P ≤ 0.05). f values were found to be pre-operative depression (f value = 0.333), pre-operative anxiety (f value = 0.015), post- operative depression (f value = 0.356), and post-operative anxiety (f value = 0.098). Conclusion: The depression and anxiety were highly associated with the patients immediately after their mandibular resection. A less high prevalence of depression and anxiety was reported in patients after the prosthetic replacement of their defective region.
