Prosthetic rehabilitation of a total glossectomized patient and specifications of the appliance, which differs from those previously reported, are presented. The functional considerations and logic used to design such a device are described. Speech performance of the patient with and without the prosthesis, is compared with a perceptibility test. Improvement of the functions of mastication, swallowing and speech were found acceptable.
