Symptoms and causes

A maxillary fracture is a fracture of the upper and/or lower jaw. No two fractures are alike. Each maxillary fracture requires a specific approach.

Diagnosis and treatment

After the clinical and radiological examination, the physician will draft an individual plan for the patient.

If the fracture is dislocated, it must be put back into place under general anaesthesia. The surgeon fixates the fracture with titanium plates and screws. If necessary, these will be removed afterwards again.
