4Fixation (comminution without defect)

Le Fort I

Apply plates to the linear fracture side

Fix the noncomminuted side by applying two plates along the vertical buttresses. Choose and contour the plates. Make sure that the screws placed below the fracture line avoid the tooth roots.

Insert at least two screws on each side of the fracture line in each plate.
