Rights and Permissions

Facial defects affect a patient’s quality of life in different aspects of psychologic health, social contacts, and functional abilities. Our report describes a 65-year-old patient who was undergone rhinectomy surgery due to nasal basal-cell carcinoma. We considered to rehabilitate the nose using two dental implants and a reversed triangle abutment to gain the best retention results for the final nasal prosthetic. The implant-supported prosthetics does not need surgery on the patient for graft, tissue transfer, or such procedures. It can effectively restore the nose in a satisfactory esthetic manner.
