Abstract

The prosthodontic rehabilitation of patients with mandibular defects is very challenging due to the muscle attachments that are present on the mandible. Any loss of mandibular continuity that occurs due to reasons like, surgery or trauma most of the times, results in mandibular deviation towards the defected side subsequently causing lack of occlusion. The basic objective of rehabilitation is re-training the mandibular musculature in order to stabilize the mandibular prosthesis by providing an acceptable maxillo-mandibular relationship with an occlusal approximation that restores the function. Emphasis on an early consultation with a maxillofacial prosthodontist for rehabilitation of mandibulectomy patient should be made. A multidisciplinary approach before, during and after surgery is necessary for better rehabilitation treatment outcome.
