 en Sectional Removable Partial Denture Design for the Treatment of Partial Mandibulectomy Patient: A Case Report
Dosumu, O.O.; Arigbede, A.O. & Ogunrinde, T.J.

Abstract

Surgical removal of tumors in the mandible may result in discontinuity of bone which may require surgical reconstruction of the defect to provide a suitable tissue foundation for an acceptable prosthesis. Failure of reconstructive surgery for some mandibulectomy patients often make prosthetic rehabilitation extremely difficult. Due to financial constraints an acrylic sectional partial denture was fabricated for a class VI mandibular resection patient who had undergone anterior segmental mandibulectomy with no surgical reconstruction. The case was challenging and the prosthesis was well tolerated during a 6 months follow-up review.
