Intermaxillary fixation (IMF) is a technique frequently used in oral and maxillofacial surgery for mandibular and midface fracture stabilization. IMF screws have shown to be a useful modality to establish maxillomandibular fixation. It is a safe, and time-sparing technique. It is an ideal device for temporary intermaxillary fixation.
Screws are intended to be placed above or between the tooth roots paying special attention to the nerves. The number and position of the IMF screws depend on the fracture type. After placement, a wire is wapped around the screws to stabilize the patients occlusion.
- The intermaxillary fixation screws are used for binding the maxillary and mandibular teeth together
- Immobilise the jaw in patients with a mandibular fracture, or during orthognathic surgery
- Self-drilling threads for easy handling and insertion
- Placement comfort for the surgeon, compared to dental arches/wire.
- Two different screw head offering flexibility to the surgeon
- Self drilling screws of 2.0mm
- Titanium alloy
- Temporary screws (removal)
