The use of computer-aided manufacturing during the treatment of the edentulous mandible in an oral radiation therapy patient: clinical report

      This clinical report describes the treatment of an edentulous patient with previous radiation therapy to the base of the tongue. A computer-aided manufactured titanium framework was used to fabricate the implant-supported fixed complete denture and meet the functional and psychosocial needs of the patient.
