Surgical management of Benign or Malignant neoplasm, congenital malformations, maxillofacial trauma or neuromuscular disease would result in maxillofacial defects. The size and location of these defects influence the degree of impairment and difficulty in prosthetic rehabilitation. Lack of support, retention, and stability of the prosthesis are some of the common problems in maxillectomy patients. Apart from these, social integration also becomes difficult as the quality of their lives is altered. Retention of partial denture prosthesis in rehabilitation of maxillectomy patient has been an enigma for prosthodontist. However, a well-planned prosthesis fabricated in accordance to the designing principles, reinforced by knowledge and skill of the prosthodontist would result in prosthesis with improved retention and stability. This case report presents management of a female patient with hemimaxillectomy using a telescopic cast partial denture treatment modality that resulted in enhanced quality of life with optimal aesthetics and functional adequacy.
