Segmental resection of the mandible destroys the balance and symmetry of function, leading to altered mandibular movements and deviation of the residual fragment toward the resected side. Prosthodontic management of unilateral hemimandibulectomy is aimed to reduce mandibular deviation and to improve the masticatory effiency. This clinical report describes a simple and efficient method utilizing customized wire-made-guide removable prosthesis to aid in reducing the mandibular deviation and enhances the masticatory efficiency.
