Hollow bulb obturator with cast retainers: a case report. . One of the most rapidly growing areas of dentistry from the stand point of both interest and need is maxillofacial prosthetics. The research of cancer has made understanding and treatment of this dreadful disease a possibility. Still the rehabilitation of these patients is a daunting job. The factors which determine the prognosis of prosthetic reconstruction are size of the defect, ability of the hard and soft tissues in defect area, proximity of vital structures, systemic conditions and the most important of all, patients attitude and temperament. This paper presents case of a hemimaxillectomy patient, where rehabilitation is carried out with a simple hollow bulb obturator, which is light in weight and aids in better retention and patient comfort. The cast retainers increased the retention of the prosthesis.. The paper discusses the primary impression making, mouth preparation, final impression, bite registration, wax and metal try-in , insertion of the prosthesis and the follow-up step with minute details.
