Then both ends of wire are passed back around the lower first molar from lingual to buccal aspect in a similar approach Fig. Comparison of intra- and post-operative parameters Click here to view. As less number of wires is used in this technique, hence the incidence of needle stick injury and gingival trauma also decreases as compared with arch bars. Inter-maxillary fixation IMF is an important contrivance in the treatment of maxillofacial fractures, and is usually applied by wiring together the fixed upper and lower arch bars or Ivy eyelet [ 12 ].

However the intremaxillary of intermaxillary fixation screws IMF has eliminated many of these issues of arch bars. A dedicated bicortical bone screw for temporary intermaxillary fixation. Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg ; How to cite this URL: Johnson Laryngoscope Investigative Otolaryngology.

Typical indications for its use are conservative management of minimally displaced fractures, maxillofacial fractures in deep bite cases, stabilization of fracture during open reduction and internal fixation, orthognathic surgeries and in tumor resection surgeries.

The aim of the present study was to compare the advantages and disadvantages of intermaxillary fixation screws over the Erich arch bars in mandibular fractures.

It can be used for both intra-operatively to keep the mandible in the desired position especially in deep bite cases where the arch bar placement is not possible, Fig. However, these techniques are time consuming, complicated, costly, need laboratory support, extend surgery time [ 3 ]. Fixatiin spaces with tight embrasures, of upper and lower corresponding posterior teeth most commonly between first and second molars on both sides and anterior pair of teeth between central incisorsare chosen.
