It may not be possible to treat large maxillofacial defects by surgical reconstruction alone. Prosthetic rehabilitation is invariably required to restore esthetics and function. Achieving adequate retention, stability, and support in these maxillofacial prostheses is a challenging task. This clinical report describes prosthetic rehabilitation of a midfacial defect following surgical resection of squamous cell carcinoma. The intraoral defect was restored with a maxillary obturator prosthesis with salivary reservoir, and the extraoral defect was restored with magnet-retained facial prosthesis having an acrylic resin framework and an overlying silicone facial prosthesis.
