Abstract

Various methods are available for mandibular reconstruction. The choice of reconstruction technique should take into consideration a number of factors, including size of defect, degree of associated soft tissue defect, the patient's overall condition, and the need for restoration of masticatory function. An understanding of reconstructive options, advantages, disadvantages, and limitations is essential for reconstruction to be successful.
