Amrita Pritam, Nivedita Mall, Rajiv Pal

As we all know that unilateral loss of mandibular continuity because of surgery or trauma results in mandibular deviation towards the resected side. This results in great loss of occlusion on the opposite normal side. It also presents as facial asymmetry and poor esthetics. A correction device 'mandibular guidance flange prosthesis' is indicated in such situations to limit these clinical dilemmas. Guide flange prosthesis literally serving as a guidance device by redirecting the mandibular closure in right way. This clinical report describes the rehabilitation following segmental mandibulectomy using mandibular guidance flange prosthesis.
Key words: Guidance flange prosthesis, Rehabilitation, Carcinoma, Mandibular deviation.
