Rehabilitation of a Bear Maul : A Case Report

Authors(4) :-Dr. Unjum Bashir, Dr. Sandeep Kour, Dr. B. Lakshmana Rao, Dr. Randhir Singh

Maul is to injure by rough treatment, manhandle, handle roughly or spoil the appearance. Among the wild animal attacks bear is the most common cause of human injuries. Deforestation has lead to the movement of bear from jungles to the planes. Bear maul is commonly seen in rural areas or where the population has migrated towards the higher reaches. Prosthodontist has always played a vital role in the restoration of form, function, aesthetics and social acceptability of such patients by giving maxillofacial prosthesis.
