Prosthetic rehabilitation for patients undergoing substantial maxillary surgery is challenging. Certainly, implantology is the best option for improving prosthesis’s support, retention, and stability. Nevertheless, the neutral zone technique can also be considered an equally effective approach patients complaining about unstable maxillofacial reconstructions, particularly when implant therapy is not feasible. The aim of this article is to describe the different steps in the construction of maxillofacial prosthesis using neutral zone technique through two clinical cases.
