Reconstruction of the mandible after ablative oral cancer surgery requires esthetic and functional rehabilitation. Restoring facial symmetry and dentition need accurate preoperative surgical planning and meticulous surgical technique. Free fibular flap is most useful tools to reconstruct mandible because of its adequate length and height, simultaneous harvest of soft and hard tissues and placing dental implants. In this case report, recurred squamous cell carcinoma in the right mandible had been resected and free fibular flap was utilized for mandible reconstruction using 3D rapid prototype. Simulation surgery before dental implant placement has been performed for esthetic and functional prosthodontics.
