  • 2. • RAMUS AND CORONOID PROCESS Fractures of the ramus exhibit very little displacement of the fragments as a result of being, to a large extent, splinted by the presence of masseter muscle on the lateral aspect and the medial pterygoid on the medial aspect. • there is usually onlt minimal displacement of the coronoid process, since the fragment is splinted by the tendinous insertion of the temporalis muscle. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • FACTORS INFLUENCING DISPLACEMENT OF FRACTURE 1. Direction and intensity of the traumatic force 2. Site of fracture 3. Direction of fracture line 4. muscle pull exerted on fractured fragments. 5. Presence or absence of teeth. 6. Extent of soft tissue wound. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • HISTORY  Writings on mandible fractures appared as early as 1650 BC, when Egyptian described the examination, diagnosis and treatment of mandible fractures.  Hippocrates described direct reapproximation of the fracture segments with the use of circumdental wiring.  1795, Chopart and Desault were the first to use dental prosthetic devices in an attempt to immobilize fracture segments Chopart and Desault  John Barton described his Barton Bandage in order to immbilize and stabilize fracture fragment www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  1886, Thomas Brain Gunning was the first person to use a custom fitted intraoral dental splint for immobilization. He used the splint in conjunction with an external head appliance.  Glimer credited with being the first to use method of intermaxillary fixation.  In 1881, Glimer described a method of mandibular fracture fixation that used two heavy rods placed on either side of the fracture and wired together. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • DIAGNOSIS OF MANDIBULAR FRACTURE  History  Clinical Examination  Change in occlusion  Anesthesia, Paresthesia or Dysesthesia of lower lip  Abnormal mandibular movements  Change in facial contour and mandibular arch form  Laceration, Hematoma and Ecchymosis  Loose teeth and crepitation on palpation  Radiological Examination  Panoramic radiograph  Lateral oblique Radiograph  Posteroanterior Radiograph  Occlusal view  reverse towne’s view  CT scan www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • GENERAL PRINCIPLE IN THE TREATMENT OF MANDIBULAR FRACTURE 1. The patient’s general physical status should be carefully evaluated and monitored prior to any consideration of treating mandibular fracture. 2. Diagnosis and treatment of mandibular fractures should be approached methodically not with an “emergency-type” mentality 3. Dental injuries should be evaluated and treated concurrently with treatment of mandibular fractures 4. Re-establishment of occlusion is the primary goal in the treatment of mandibular fracture. 5. With multiple facial fracture mandibular fracture should be treated first. 6. Intermaxillary fixation time should vary according to the type, location, number severity of the mandibular fracture as well as the patient’s age and health. 7. Prophylactic antibiotics should be used for compound fractures. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • PROTOCOL FOR TREATMENT OF MANDIBULAR FRACTURES Philip L. Maloney,J Oral Maxillofac Surg,59:879-884, 2001 • Simple fractures of the condylar process and ramus are usually treated by closed reduction. Patients are placed in maxillomandibular fixation (MMF) for 48 to72 hours, followed by training elastics and close observation to ensure that a malocclusion does not occur. • No MMF is required for coronoid fractures; archbars and training elastics are used only if a malocclusion is present. • Simple or compound fractures with a time delay from injury to immobilization of less than 72 hours are treated by a closed reduction (CR) or, if indicated, open reduction with rigid fixation (ORIF). • Compound fractures where there is a delay from injury to immobilization of more than 72 hours are treated with MMF and intravenous antibiotics for a period roughly equal to the time from injury to initialtreatment (eg, a patient with a 5-day-old compound fracture receives intravenous antibiotics for 5 days). If the closed reduction is adequate, the patient is continued on oral antibiotics for an additional 10 to 14days and maintained in MMF and on a blenderized diet for 5 to 6 weeks from the time of closed reduction. If not, ORIF is performed, and MMF is maintained for 10 to 14 additional days. • Edentulous patients are treated with rigid fixation, no MMF, and a blenderized diet for 4 to 5 weeks. • Teeth in the line of fracture are judged individually. If sound, firm, and the supportive tissues are intact, they are retained except if an open reduction is to be performed; then, partially erupted and impacted third molars in the line of fracture are removed. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • INDICATIONS FOR CLOSED REDUCTION 1. Non-displaced favorable fractures 2. Grossly comminuted fractures 3. Fractures exposed by significant loss of overlying soft tissue. 4. Mandibular fractures in children with developing dentition 5. Coronoid process fracture 6. Condylar fractures www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • INDICATIONS FOR OPEN REDUCTION 1. Displaced unfavorable fracture through angle of the mandible 2. Displaced unfavorable fractures of the body or pasymphyseal region 3. Multiple fractures of the facial bones 4. Midface fractures and displaced Bilateral condyler fractures 5. Fractures of the edentulous mandible with severe displacement of fragments 6. Edentulous maxilla opposing a mandibular fracture 7. Delay of treatment and interposition of soft tissue between noncontacting displaced fracture fragments. 8. Malunion 9. Special systemic conditions contraindicating intermaxillaryfixation www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • A GUIDELINE FOR TIME OF IMMOBILIZATION FOR FRACTURES OF TOOTH-BEARING AREA OF THE LOWER JAW - Peter bank (1991) Young Adult With Fracture of the body of the mandible Receiving 3 weeks Early treatment In which Tooth removed from fracture line If : a. Tooth retained in fracture line : add 1 week b. Fracture at the symphysis : add 1 week c. Age 40 years or above : add 1 or 2 weeks d.
