Abstract: In today’s society, a facial defect or oral defect is seen as a weakness in some people and seen as a terrible way to suffer. It takes away a person’s dignity and may hide a his/her personality. To improve this for the patient, it will open a new life for the patient. For this patient a full-hemi-maxillectomy was required for the treatment of Adeno Cystic Carcinoma. This led to the removal of bone and soft tissue of the patient. The right half of the maxilla was surgically removed.
