Digital impressions can be a useful option that reduces patient discomfort and simplifies clinical procedures such as accurate impression recordings. In this report, a patient with a partial maxillectomy was managed with a metal frame fabricated from a digital impression through an intraoral scanner. The final impression employed the altered cast technique for the fabrication of the obturator.
