Maxillofacial defects are highly individualized and require the maxillofacial prosthodontist to think differently to fabricate a good functional prosthesis within economical constraint along with the basic principle of prosthesis making. In the case of bilateral total maxillectomy defects fabrication of well retentive functional prosthesis itself a challenging task for a prosthodontist. Limited mouth opening further makes it complicated. This case report describes a simple technique of fabrication of two piece hollow obturator prosthesis joined by magnets for rehabilitation of bilateral total maxillectomy patient with limited mouth opening.
Key words: Bilateral total maxillectomy, two-piece obturator, magnets.
