Abstract: In this case study , the fabrication of a hollow bulb obturator was made for a patient that had extensive surgery done to her maxilla. The patient that was involved was a 60 year old female who developed a cancer known as Burkett’s Lymphoma in the left side of her maxilla. This type of cancer is a very aggressive growing type. The cancer was surgically removed, and it left a very large cavity in her jaw, that extended posteriorly from her left lateral incisor through the soft palate and into the nasal cavity.
