Guide flange prosthesis for early management of reconstructed hemimandibulectomy: a case report

Although the process of reviewing a manuscript is a time consuming task butit is expected to give one’s best remarks within the time frame of the journal. Extra oral examination revealed facial asymmetry and deviation of mandible towards the resected site and the deviation increased on opening the mouth.

The inclination of the guide-flange was adjusted by selectively trimming the teeth-contacting surface or adding the auto-polymerizing clear acrylic resin DPI Cold cure clear; Dental products of India, Mumbai, India. Ji FF L- Editor: Received Jul; Accepted Nov. Please review our privacy policy.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. No intermaxillary fixation was applied at the time of surgery. Frequent follow-ups are mandatory and it should be noted whether continuous wear would help the patient to improve further in achieving proper centric occlusion without guiding flange and whether she would be able to retain that ability once the guiding flange is discontinued. Ameloblastoma is a highly aggressive odontogenic tumor of epithelial origin commonly found in posterior mandible and treated with the proosthesis excision.

The GFP and the maxillary stabilization plate were finished and polished in usual manner. Also, some journals do not keep the contributors informed about the progress of the review process.


So the treatment objective was to correct the deviation of mandible and to restore proper occlusion for mastication. The prosthesis extended till the lingual sulcus on palatal non resected side.

When viewed from the frontal plane, the teeth on the surgical side of the mandible move away from the maxillary teeth after the initial contact on the nonsurgical side has been established.

Definitive guiding flange prosthesis: A definitive approach in segmental mandibulectomy defect

Support Center Support Center. I thank JCDR for giving me an opportunity to improve my own skills as an author and a reviewer.

The multidisciplinary nature of the journal makes it a better platform to absorb all that is being researched and developed. How to cite this article: Introduction Surgical treatment for neoplastic lesions of the oral cavity often requires resection involving the mandible, floor of the mouth, prosthessis and also the palate.

The main features of the journal which were outlined in the e-mail were extensive author support, cash rewards, the peer review process, and other salient features of the journal.

August 2, Article in press: This had been made possible due to the efforts and the hard work put in it. Reviewing articles is no less a pain staking process and requires in depth perception, knowledge about the topic for review. Published by Baishideng Publishing Group Inc. Patients who are closed with a myocutaneous or free flap soon attain an acceptable interocclusal relationship with adjunctive therapy, while some patients who are closed primarily, are never able to achieve an appropriate and a stable interocclusal relationship.

The amount of deviation and downward rotation depends on the extent of tissue loss. Use protshesis a guide plane for maintaining the residual fragment in partial or hemimandibulectomy.

Quality medical manuscript writing in particular, demands not only a high-quality research, but also requires accurate and concise communication of findings and conclusions, with adherence to particular journal guidelines.

The other aspect of it is, the readers get the information regarding the most recent developments in science which can be used for teaching, research, treating patients and to some extent take preventive measures against certain diseases.

After one week, the patient was evaluated for the insertion of the interim removable partial denture. Both form and function should be considered in mandibualr hemimandibulectomy patients.

These movements tend to loosen scar contracture, reduce trismus and reprogram the remaining musculature to close the mandible into the centric occlusion. Prosthodontic treatment coupled with an exercise program helps in reducing mandibular deviation and improving masticatory efficiency. The surgery was performed 20 days back and reconstruction was done with muscle graft. The quality of printing of figures and tables pgosthesis excellent and comparable to any International journal.
