What are the alternatives?

October 30, 2019

You may not need surgery if the fracture is not displaced or is only slightly displaced, you are comfortable and you can bite together normally.

Sometimes special screws or wires are placed around your teeth and elastics used to keep your teeth aligned. This is called intermaxillary fixation. This is removed after 6 weeks once the fracture has healed.

You will need to eat only soft foods for six weeks and we will ask you to come to the Maxillofacial Surgery Trauma Clinic at the Charles Clifford Dental Hospital for regular check-ups.
