Jaw Fracture - Treatment Guidelines
Manual re-positioning or re-positioning with forceps of displaced segment. Stabilize the fracture with splint using inter-maxillary immobilization for 6 weeks. An alternative treatment is surgical re-positioning and stabilization using plating (open reduction). In this case inter-maxillary splinting can usually be avoided.
