Introduction: Combined defects are large facial defects which are difficult to restore aesthetically and functionally. Retention of these kind of prosthesis is also a challenging aspect of treatment.

Methodology: This case series presents Prosthodontic rehabilitation of three patients with large, continuous facial defect involving maxilla, orbit and some part of the nose. In three patients, two had a history of squamous cell carcinoma and one had rhino-cerebro-orbital mucormycosis. Retaining facial prosthesis or intra-oral obturator prosthesis always a challenge in maxillofacial defects due to the lack of supporting hard and soft tissues. In case of continuous defect retention of one part of prosthesis aids in retention of other part of prosthesis. So Two-piece lightweight prosthesis was fabricated and retained with the use of very economical three different kinds of retentive aids such as plug and socket, titch buttons, and magnets respectively.

Conclusion: Increased retention improves comfort as well as the confidence of the patient while wearing a facial prosthesis at work and in social settings.
