SBI Colony, Nagpur Road, Wardha-442001, Maharashtra, India.
The loss of continuity of the lower jaw following surgical excision destroys the balance and symmetry of mandibular functions. Prosthodontic rehabilitation has, therefore, become the treatment option to restore functions, aesthetics and to alleviate psychological status in such patients who deny further surgical intervention or in whom surgical reconstruction procedures are not indicated.
This case report describes a prosthodontic rehabilitation of a patient who has undergone a hemimandibulectomy with the overlay denture lined with the silicone liner to fulfil the patient’s needs and requirements.
