Full texts of all articles relevant to oral functions outcomes following tongue cancer surgery and prosthetic rehabilitation were retrieved.The criteria used were sample with any ; resection due to malignant tumors, restricted to tongue and/or floor of mouth; type of prosthetic rehabilitation; and description of the oral functions outcomes with prosthesis.For the meta-analysis of individual data, associations between the variables of interest and the type of prosthesis were evaluated.Copyright © 2016 Viviane de Carvalho and Luiz Ubirajara Sennes.This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.
