There is no conflict of interest or financial interests, direct or indirect, that exist or may be perceived to exist for individual contributors in connection with the content of this paper. The quality of printing of figures and tables is excellent and comparable to any International journal.

The acrylic resin extended over the occlusal flajge of the left maxillary posterior teeth prevents the possible extrusion of the teeth till replacement of mandibular teeth on defect side. My very best wishes to JCDR and hope it will sparkle up above the sky as a high indexed journal in near future.

Prosthodontic management of hemimandibulectomy patients to restore form and function – A case series. The GFP can be regarded as a training type of prosthesis. Medicine, Research and Experimental. Find articles by Pravinkumar Gajanan Patil. The main purpose is to re-educate the mandibular muscles to re-establish an acceptable occlusal relationship physiotherapeutic function for the residual hemimandible, so that the patient can control the opening and closing of the mandibular movements guive and repeatedly.

Their prompt and timely response to review’s query and the manner in which they have set the reviewing process helps in extracting the best possible scientific writings for publication. After applying sufficient separating medium, the resin was added on buccal and lingual aspect of nondefect side of mandible and on the buccal side the extension was till the maxillary buccal vestibule. Their systematic approach in publication of article in various categories is really praiseworthy.

It’s a honour and pride to be a part of the JCDR team.


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

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Disability and rehabilitation in head and neck cancer patients after treatment.

Loss of the proprioceptive prosthesiw of occlusion leads to the uncoordinated, less precise movement of the mandible. The success in rehabilitating a patient with hemimandibulectomy depends upon the nature and extent of the surgical defect, treatment plan, type of prosthesis, and patient co-operation.

J Indian Prosthodont Soc ;8: Three days after insertion of the prosthesis, the patient was able to achieve a functional intercuspal position without manual manipulation. Final prosthesis, note the absence of the second molar in the prosthesis to prevent unwanted leverage.

We did not find any clinically significant teeth movement on one and half year follow-up-visit may be due to extension of the flanges of the GFP over entire alveolar segment along with the teeth.

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

Relating examination findings to treatment prosthdsis. The patient was advised to use the guide flange device throughout the day, except at night and during meals.

I would particularly like to thank the publication managers and the Assistant Editor who were following up my article. To progress, one needs to identify the areas flahge one’s weakness and to strengthen them. The patient presented in this article was a teenager female who was very esthetic conscious.

They further stated that fabrication of a provisional guide plane facilitates the fabrication of a definitive restoration. May be a bimonthly or quarterly publication to begin with. Diagnostic considerations for prosthodontic rehabilitation of the mandibulectomy patient; pp.

This would permit occlusion of remaining natural teeth or control of residual edentulous segments to provide for the reasonable placement and acceptable occlusion of the artificial teeth[ 7 ].

Primary closure versus radial forearm flap reconstruction after hemiglossectomy: No intermaxillary fixation was applied at the time of surgery. Authors are the souls of any journal, and deserve much respect. Guidance prosthesis and interim removable partial denture serve as training appliances till a cast partial denture can be fabricated for the patient. The functional result of mandibular reconstruction.


Also, the number of manuscripts in an issue is high and it may be difficult for readers to go through all of them. Following bite registration, casts were mounted onto a semi-adjustable articulator, and tooth set-up was carried out. This clinical report illustrates the prosthetic management of a patient who underwent mandibular resection due to surgery for ameloblastoma. The absence of the mxndibular of mastication on the surgical side results in a significant rotation of the mandible upon forceful closure.

Mandiublar no immediate intervention to rehabilitate the patient, definitive mandibular guidance prostheses with a metal guiding flange and acrylic teeth on the resected side can be used successfully to stabilize the occlusion and correct the deviation.

It has grown considerably and I feel it has already grown up from its infancy to adolescence, achieving the status of standard online e-journal form Indian continent since its inception in Feb Rajendra Kumar Ghritlaharey, M.

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

The article details GF prosthesis combined with physiotherapy to correct deviation of mandible thereby kandibular mastication, esthetics and speech and thus enhancing the quality of life. If intervention with the GF was not done at this time, the deviation would worsen on healing process and scar formation. Mandibilar multidisciplinary nature of the journal makes it a better platform to absorb all that is being researched and developed.

I wish the publisher all the best in his future endeavors. Prosthodontic management of hemimandibulectomy patients to restore form and function – A case series. This clinical report gives a brief review of resection guidance prosthesis and describes the fabrication of an acrylic guidance flange prosthesis.

Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research [serial online] October [cited: A mandibular based acrylic resection prosthesis with a buccal guiding flange was planned.
