Abstract

Prosthodontists play a major role for management of patients with congenital and acquired maxillary defects by fabricating obturator. Oronasal communication is an abnormal epithelized tract between mouth and nasal cavity, which causes difficulty in deglutition and speech by nasal regurgitation of fluid and nasal speech respectively. This case report describes prosthodontic management of a sixty year old male patient with completely edentulous maxilla and dentate mandible with an iatrogenic palatal defect developed as a result of maxillary left molar extraction.

Keywords: Obturator, Extraction, Oronasal communication, Rehabilitation.
