Case Study
Rehabilitation of patients with mandibular defect requires a multidisciplinary approach involving a head and neck surgeon, maxillofacial prosthodontist and a reconstructive surgeon. A hemimandibulectomy patient can have many debilitating consequences such as eccentric occlusion, disoriented masticatory cycle, facial disfigurement, distorted speech and salivation problem. The aim of this case report is to describe a technique which combines crown with prosthetic rehabilitation to meet the functional and esthetic requirement of the hemimandibulectomy patients.

    Patients with open bite often show a weak occlusal force and temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). If these are the main cause of open bite, it may be hypothesized that both pre-pubertal and adult open-bite patients would show a weak occlusal force and abnormal condylar motion. The purpose of this...
