Mandibular resection leads to altered mandibular movements, disfigurement, difficult in swallowing, impaired speech and articulation, and deviation of the mandible towards the resected site. Numerous prosthetic methods employed to reduce or minimize deviation and improve function include maxillomandibular fixation, implant supported prosthesis, removable mandibular guide flange prosthesis, and palatal based guidance restoration. Management of patients who require mandibular resection without bony reconstruction is difficult. This article describes the prosthetic management of a patient following segmental mandibular resection.
