Abstract

Severe limitation in the oral opening, though an uncommon clinical presentation, makes gaining access to the oral cavity difficult for any dental procedure. This article describes the maxillofacial prosthetic management of a patient with a midfacial defect complicated by postsurgical microstomia. Intraoral and extraoral prostheses restored the patient's speech, dental articulation, mastication, lip support, esthetics, and anterior oral seal.
