Mandibular Fracture – Wiring and Plating PPT Summary

  1. There are several different wiring techniques for stabilizing mandibular fractures, including Essig’s wiring, Gilmer’s wiring, Risdon’s wiring, and Ivy eyelet wiring.
  2. Transosseous wiring can be done through an intraoral or extraoral approach and involves drilling holes in the bony fragments and passing a wire through them.
  3. Bone plating using simple noncompression bone plates or miniplates is another method for mandibular fracture fixation.
  4. Compression plates with pear-shaped holes are used to overcome the tendency for the upper border and lingual plate to open up during tightening of screws.
  5. Reconstruction plates are useful for comminuted fractures, defect fractures, and severely displaced angle fractures.
