Those involving the tongue results in mild to severe deficiencies of phonation, deglutition, mastication, and taste depending upon the degree and extent tissues involved. Often rehabilitation of such patient is a challenge for the prosthodontist and involves a careful observation and evaluation of the residual oral function and ways to restore them. This article presents a case report of prosthodontic rehabilitation completely edentulous patient, who underwent partial glossectomy following surgical resection of the squamous cell carcinoma involving left lateral borders of the tongue. An attempt was made to restore the comfort and function of the patient with the help of palatal augmentation prosthesis, with additional assistance through speech therapy and simple oral exercises.

Mentions: The patient wore an old denture, fabricated 1.5 years back. The tissue surface of the denture showed signs of frequent chair side relining and use of denture adhesive. The prosthesis lacked the required stability, retention, and esthetics. There was a loss in the vertical dimension, accentuated by collapsed bite [Figure 2].
