An extensive intraoral maxillofacial prosthesis presents challenges to the clinician in many ways. The problems encountered include that of support and retention of the prosthesis. These problems arise due to unfavorable anatomical configuration of the defect. This unfavorable configuration may prompt the clinician to device alternate /additional means of support and retention. The aim of this case series is to review the conventional and unconventional means of support and retention for the maxillary obturator prosthesis.
