When patients are first diagnosed with head and neck (H&N) cancer, their main concern is with survival. However, following cancer treatment, their concerns can rapidly shift towards reobtaining and maintaining a good quality of life (QoL) [1]. Oral prosthodontic rehabilitation forms a major component of QoL improvement contributing not only functionally but also psychologically. H&N cancer treatment can leave the patient with significant disability and deformity. Oral prosthodontic rehabilitation aims to address the acquired functional and cosmetic deficits by providing treatment to restore the defect, re-establish oral function, improve cosmetic appearance and allow the patient to interact in society with confidence. Rehabilitation should be patient-centred aiming to meet each individual’s unique and specific needs.
