The maxillofacial patient can experience unique alterations in the normal oral / craniofacial environment because of maxillofacial trauma, congenital defects, developmental anomalies and neuromuscular diseases. In general, there is reduced capacity for residual teeth and tissue to provide optimal cross arch support, stability and retention. The design must take into account the tooth-tissue support considerations and the impact of the altered environment on prosthesis support, stability and retention. The present article is a case report of the rehabilitation of a compromised Aramany class II maxillectomy defect with a definitive hollow bulb obturator.
