Reconstruction of functional occlusion in case of a large surgical defect of the mandible involving partial mandibulectomy remains a significant challenge to the maxillofacial surgeon and prosthodontist. Removable appliances and the conventional implant-supported prosthesis are precluded in this case due to the absence of normal anatomical contours of the bone. In recent years, due to the advancement of technology, bone graft reconstruction with computer-guided rehabilitation of the functional occlusion has been advocated to reverse the debilitating effects of the hemimandibulectomy defect. This clinical report describes the prosthodontic management of fibular graft reconstructed mandible by computer-aided design–computer-aided manufacturing guided implant-supported prosthesis.
