Maxillofacial prosthetics is the branch of prosthodontics which involves rehabilitation of the defects in the maxillofacial region involving the hard and soft tissue with the prosthesis. Facial defects that occur in the midfacial regions are commonly due to trauma and neoplasms like basal cell carcinoma which involves the nose. Reconstruction of the nose is an important esthetic challenge due to its esthetic and retention problems. This article emphasis rehabilitation of the nasal defect of a patient with nasal prosthesis using donor method.
