Oral rehabilitation of patients with mandibular resection present challenges to maxillofacial prosthodontist. Segmental resection is 'associated with postoperative facial disfigurement and disability. So, surgeons try to preserve the continuity of mandible, whenever feasible by marginal resection. As the surgical reconstruction (by implants and grafts) is not always feasible in every patient, prosthodontic approach has to be considered to restore the esthetics and function. The manner in wriich the principles of removable partial denture are applied and interpreted must be modified because of altered anatomic and functional situation. This article describes the prosthetic management of a patient following partially resected dentulous mandible.
