Prosthetic Rehabilitation Of Post Covid Maxillary Enucleation Defect With Cast Partial Denture And Fixed Dental Prosthesis: A Case Report
Purpose: Enucleation is a complete separation of the lesion from adjacent bone and soft tissues by removing it. The surgical removal of the part of maxilla can have devastating effect on speech, mastication, appearance and confidence of the patient. So, proper restoration of the intra-oral defect is necessary. This clinical case report describes rehabilitation of a post covid maxillary enucleation defect with a cast partial denture and fixed dental prosthesis (FDP).
Method: After the tooth preparation and fabrication of fixed dental prosthesis (DMLS PFM crowns) on contralateral side of the defect, final impression and CAD-CAM designing of CPD was done to fabricate the Cast partial denture to rehabilitate the post covid maxillary enucleation defect.
Conclusion: This case report describes the advantages of using DMLS and CAD-CAM fabricated FDP and CPD over conventional technique for rehabilitation of the maxillary enucleation defect.
