Background : Prosthetic rehabilitation of the hemimandibulectomy patient has always been a difficult task for the prosthodontist. Mandibular discontinuity following resection is a debilitating condition for patients. Mandibular deviation results in impaired masticatory function and facial disfigurement. Early prosthetic intervention by guide flange prosthesis helps the patient to achieve normal maxillo-mandibular relationship and early restoration of normal function. This case report presents the fabrication of guide flange prosthesis prior to hemimandibulectomy procedure, preventing mandibular deviation.
