Diagnosis and treatment
Each maxillary (jaw) fracture requires a specific approach. After all, no two fractures are alike. After the clinical and radiological examination, the physician will draft an individual plan for the patient.
If the fracture is displaced, it will have to be repositioned under general anaesthesia. The fracture will then be fixated with titanium plates and screws. If necessary, these can be removed afterwards.
