Ameloblastoma is a locally invasive odontogenic tumor of the jaw. It can advance to large size resulting in facial deformity, loose teeth, and in severe cases pathologic fracture of the jaws. As ameloblastoma shows local invasiveness and tendency for recurrence, radical surgery which includes marginal resection or segmental resection are preferred. This clinical report describes the prosthetic rehabilitation of a patient affected by extensive mandibular ameloblastoma. Enbloc resection of the tumor and reconstruction by fibula-free flap was done. After initial healing for about 18 months, five endosseous implants were placed and implant-supported fixed hybrid prosthesis using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing milled titanium framework was fabricated. Surgical and prosthodontic challenges are discussed. Osseointegrated implants provide a new perspective of treatment to enhance the quality of life of patients resected for oral tumors.
