Abstract: This article concerns a young male, who at the age of 28, was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma of the mandible. The article refers to the surgical procedures that were followed to eliminate the tumour and to fabricate the maxillary and mandibular prosthesis, thereby restoring the patient’s masticatory efficiency and aesthetics. The maxillary prosthesis fabricated was a removable partial denture retained with 2 ball clasps, whereas the mandibular prosthesis was a complete removable implant-retained denture that was secured to the implants by the use of 4 ball attachments.
