A swing-lock denture is useful in partially dentate patients where the configuration of the remaining teeth means that either the retention or stability available for a conventional removable partial denture is compromised. Such removable prostheses can also prove to be extremely useful when providing prosthodontic rehabilitation following surgical resection of oral cancer. A 20 year-old patient was referred to the Restorative Department of Cork University Dental Hospital following segmental mandibulectomy to treat a calicifying epithelial odontogenic tumour (Pindborg Tumour). Initial treatment using a conventional lower partial denture failed. This paper outlines the successfully rehabilitation using a lower Cobalt-Chromium swing-lock partial denture.
