  • Abstract

    Loss of the continuity of the mandible destroys the balance and the symmetry of mandibular function, leading to altered mandibular movements and deviation of the fragment toward the surgical side. Surgical resection of mandible usually produces problems in prosthetic reconstruction such as mandibular deviation. An interdisciplinary approach is required between the oral surgeon and prosthodontist. The prosthodontist plays a key role in reestablishing normal or near-normal function in patients who have undergone mandibular resection in the course of removal of a neoplasm. The clinicians must wait for an extensive period of time for completion of healing and acceptance of the osseous graft before considering the definitive prosthesis. This case report describes early prosthodontic management (during initial healing period of the reconstructed mandible) of a patient who has undergone hemimandibulectomy treated with acrylic guidance flange prosthesis.
