By Seema B. Pattanaik and Aarti P. Wadkar

Abstract

Rehabilitation in patients with facial defects requires multidisciplinary approach involving a head and neck surgeon, a maxillofacial prosthodontist and a reconstructive surgeon. Here we discuss a case of mid-facial defect due to a congenital anomaly for which a sectional impression was made. A removable nasal prosthesis obturating oro-nasal defect along with an overlay partial maxillary denture for the correction of malocclusion was given to the patient till definitive reconstructive surgery was performed
