Facial paralysis is a condition that involves loss of control of facial muscles on the affected side and is generally sudden in onset. The nerve involved is the VII cranial nerve. This report presents the prosthodontic management of a patient for both function and esthetics and thus enhances his self-esteem. Our approach was to use a technique that enables the patient to stabilize the mandibular movements and use the fabricated denture successfully.
