Mandibular Fractures

Welcome! If you are familiar with the subject of this article, you can contribute to this open access knowledge base by deleting incorrect information, restructuring or completely rewriting any text. Read more.

Disease relevance of Mandibular Fractures

  • Under acute conditions, maxillofacial injuries may be treated without the opportunity for an assessment of occlusal irregularities, even when there are mandibular fractures, because life-threatening injuries have priority over occlusion [1].
  • This paper presents a case of a chronic mandibular fracture following an episode of seizures in a patient with epilepsy in whom the fracture was discovered when he developed a fistula in the submandibular region [2].

High impact information on Mandibular Fractures


Chemical compound and disease context of Mandibular Fractures

  • In order to evaluate whether teeth left in the line of mandibular fracture can predispose to occlusal interferences, the contact relationships between the maxillary and mandibular teeth in 37 mandibular corpus fracture patients were examined on the average 41 months after the injury [8].
  • Plates and screws of this bio-absorbable PLLA appear to be an attractive alternative for internal fixation of mandibular fractures and certainly for less loaded fractures of the human skeleton [9].
  • The use of methylmethacrylate in the fixation of mandibular fractures in dogs. Experimental results [10].
  • A pathologic mandibular fracture in a 35-year-old woman 1 year after the attempted filling of a bone defect with particulate, dense hydroxyapatite resulted in a partial mandibular resection, allowing observation of cross sections of the mandible and associated soft tissue [11].
  • The analgesic effect of topical application of a 5% eutectic mixture of lignocaine and prilocaine (EMLA) was studied in 45 patients undergoing removal of oral arch bars used for the treatment of mandibular fractures [12].
