Patients with restricted mouth opening after maxillcctomy procedure, often complain of difficulty in placement and removal of the dental prosthesis. Such a problem can be overcome by fabrication of a sectional removable prosthesis. This article presents a fabrication procedure of prosthesis for a patient with restricted mouth opening after partial maxillectomy, where the two sections, namely, the hollow bulb and the conventional complete denture, were retained to each other by incorporation of magnets and magnet keepers in both the sections.
