|Abstract:||The correct positioning of the microvascular-free fibula flap (MFFF) is essential for satisfactory mandibularreconstruction. However, the effect of acrylic resin-based surgical guides on prosthetic rehabilitations has not yet been properly investigated. The purpose of this randomized clinical trial was to evaluate whether intraoral and extraoral acrylic resin-based surgical guides improve anatomic, functional, esthetic, and quality of life (QoL) results for dental prosthetic rehabilitation with MFFF. Participants subjected to mandibular reconstruction with MFFF were selected and randomly distributed into 2 groups, control (Co; using conventional surgery) and acrylic resin-based surgical guides (Sg). Functional parameters related to prosthetic rehabilitation and QoL were evaluated by interviews and an oral health impact profile (OHIP)-14 questionnaire. Functional parameters and questionnaire scores were subjected to statistical analysis: the likelihood ratio and the Fisher exact and Mann-Whitney U tests (α=.05). Of 40 participants, 18 were rehabilitated, 10 with tooth-tissue-supported partial removable dentures and 8 with implant prostheses. In Sg, the study measured an enhancement in functional parameters and revealed a significant improvement in QoL (P=.020). The guides proposed directly improved mandibular reconstruction. Functional aspects may be improved by allowing good intermaxillary relationships and posterior dental rehabilitation. Functional success is directly dependent on soft tissue status and the quality of its reconstruction. Soft tissue evaluation is important before dental rehabilitation|
