Mandibular discontinuity defects following a segmental mandibulectomy defects present a major
challenge to the rehabilitation team. With no immediate intervention to rehabilitate the patient,
definitive mandibular guidance prostheses with a metal guiding flange and acrylic teeth on the

present case report describes the prosthodontic rehabilitation of a patient with a segmental
mandibulectomy using a mandibular prosthesis with a metal guide flange and a maxillary stabilizing
metal framework.
