Reconstruction of the maxilla is quite a difficult challenge for reconstructive surgeons. The maxilla is the most important part of the midface, which contributes to facial esthetics, mastication, swallowing, speech, supporting orbital contents and sinus function. Free fibular flap is most versatile to reconstruct jaw bone because of its adequate length, containing both soft and bony tissues and acceptance of dental implants. In this case report, a reconstruction of the maxilla using free fibular flap and dental implants is described in which rapid prototype was used before surgery to simulate the final prosthetic results.
