This clinical report describes the clinical requirements, treatment sequence, and use of a relatively new intraoral electrolarynx for a completely edentulous patient. This device consists of a sound source attached to the maxilla and a hand-held controller unit that controls the pitch and volume of the intraoral sound source via transmitted radio waves.
