Abstract: Mandibular segmental defects present a challenge for reconstruction, and the current gold standard of reconstruction with a free fibula flap is a technically challenging and complex procedure associated with long surgery times and donor site morbidity. The rapid advancement of 3-Dimensional (3D) modelling and printing, virtual surgical planning (VSP) and patient-specific implants have become an attractive option. This study proposes a novel 3D printed, patient specific titanium prosthesis for the reconstruction of mandibular segmental defects, incorporating dental implants for dental rehabilitation and biological anchorage via osseointegration. We hypothesise that this novel prosthesis will be able to reconstruct a critical sized mandibular segmental defect while incorporating dental implants for biological anchorage and for dental rehabilitation conventional denture base resin) and finishing protocols on surface roughness and adhesion of C. albicans.
