Edentulous patients with lateral discontinuity defects of the mandible pose a challenge for the prosthodontist. With variable degrees of bony and soft-tissue resection, the prosthodontic prognosis is dependent on a number of complex factors. Complete dentures in such patients are primarily given for improvement of esthetics. In a selected few patients, however, such prosthesis may improve speech and masticatory function. This case report describes the use of two rows of nonanatomic teeth (in the maxillary denture) on the unresected side to broaden the occlusal table, thus fulfilling the patient's needs and requirements.
