Rehabilitation in patients with facial defects requires a multidisciplinary approach involving a head and neck surgeon, a maxillofacial prosthodontist and a reconstructive surgeon. Extra-oral prosthetic rehabilitation complements reconstructive surgery in patients with facial defects especially- in our set-up where economic factors are a major consideration for the patient. We discuss a case of facial injury as a result of a bear attack for which an extra-oral facial prosthesis was applied to the patient at a fraction of the cost of reconstructive surgery.
