Abstract

Traumatic injuries, especially in maxillofacial region, not only lead to physical debilitation but also cause severe psychological distress in the affected individuals. Complete cosmetic and functional rehabilitation of such patients is a challenging task and thus requires a strategic treatment planning and a multidisciplinary team to execute the treatment. This patient report presents a patient who suffered with a severe glass cut injury leading to massive avulsion of face involving forehead, nose, upper lip, and anterior teeth. Patient was rehabilitated with a combined surgical and prosthetic approach, which involved flap repositioning in forehead, nasal and lip regions and an implant-supported nasal prosthesis to replace missing nose. Missing anterior teeth were replaced with fixed dental prostheses.
