These blunt-tipped devices have been shown to effectively hold a patient's teeth into occlusion, termed maxillo-mandibular fixation (MMF), while replacing the need for wires.
Different treatment modalities available for the mandibular fractures include maxillo-mandibular fixation (MMF) using various techniques, MMF with non rigid fixation using trans-osseous wiring at superior or inferior border, external pin fixation, Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) using mini plates and lag screws (semi rigid fixation), Non compression and compression plates (rigid fixation)3.
Patients requiring orthognathic surgery for correction of their maxillo-mandibular disharmony will also have to undergo orthodontic treatment during both pre- and postsurgical treatment phases.
