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 residual fragment towards the surgical side. This clinical report gives a brief review of resection guidance prosthesis and describes the fabrication of an acrylic guidance flange prosthesis. Successful intercuspal position was accomplished through the use of the guidance appliance, combined with physiotherapy in a patient who underwent a hemisection of the mandible, subsequent to treatment for an ameloblastoma.
