One of the most challenging and demanding maxillofacial endeavours is the construction of functional dental prosthesis for an edentulous patient who has undergone a mandibular resection. A hemimandibulectomy can have many debilitating consequences such as eccentric occlusion, a disoriented masticatory cycle, facial disfigurement, distorted speech and salivation problems. There are many treatment options for restoring the defect like guiding flange prosthesis, conventional acrylic removable partial prosthesis, cast partial dental prosthesis etc; implants today are a better treatment option as it provides good retention, stability and support for a prosthesis. This case report presents the management of the Hemimandibulectomy patient with implant retained overdenture.
