Management of a hemimandibulectomy patient using a guide plane prosthesis and a cast partial denture: A case report

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Rahul Shah, Dr. Rajeev Singh, Dr. Gaurang Mistry and Dr. Omkar Shetty
ABSTRACT:The restoration of normal function and esthetics is often challenging in the prosthetic rehabilitation of patients with hemimandibulectomy defects due to unstable occlusion and mandibular deviation. The extensive period of time for completion of healing of the reconstructed mandible through reconstructive plastic surgery and/or implant-assisted prosthesis may compromise the masticatory function by causing delay in the fabrication of definitive prosthesis [1]. This case report highlights different treatment modalities in the rehabilitation of a patient who underwent a hemimandibulectomy due to an aggressive squamous cell carcinoma of the lower left jaw and involving some aspects of the neck.
