Maxillofacial prosthodontics is an art and science which provides life- like appearance to the disfigured person. Even if this person is left out and considers himself inferior in the society, a prosthodontist helps him out and provides a better place in the society. Here, we are presenting a case of hemimandibulectomy, where the economical replacement was needed. Cheek prosthesis is fabricated by using a thermoplastic material to provide and improve adhesive qualities to the prosthesis.
