This case report describes the prosthetic challenges of a patient who underwent a partial hemimandibulectomy and a subsequent free fibula graft after a mucoepidermoid carcinoma resection. This type of osseous reconstruction has several functional as well as esthetic difficulties that must be considered when designing the prosthesis. A thorough case description as well as its follow-up is presented and discussed.
