Rehabilitation of hemimaxillectomy patients can be challenging. The most common problem with prosthetic treatment in such patients is in getting adequate retention, stability, and support. Maxillary obturator prosthesis is most commonly fabricated for patient’s undergone surgical maxillectomy. It helps in mastication, deglutition and aids in speech. Various methods have been described in literature to make it hollow for reduction of weight of prosthesis. This case report describes another method of making a hollow prosthesis.
