Finally a bit of positive news (kinda). We had our vet out to come and see how Misty was doing now her antibiotics have finished, she was happy that her the debridement hole has completely healed which means it’s highly unlikely there are any foreign bodies left floating around in her jaw! She was a bit miffed that she’s still swollen around her jaw but think it may be to do with the bony changes from the initial fracture. We’re just to keep monitoring her for now with an X-ray planned for the future to see how the fracture is doing. Keeping fingers firmly crossed that she’s finally on the road to recovery!! 🤞🏼🤞🏼 No RVC visits for now and I’m to continue exercising her bitless 😁 #pony #cob #mare #gettingthere #jawfracture #happy
Tonight on Tuesdays with Teeth, let’s talk Tallulah’s TAPE MUZZLE! 🐶Her mom doesn't know how, but little Tallulah broke her jaw bone a day ago while playing in the house. These teensy dogs are prone to bone fractures because of their minute size, so little things that wouldn't hurt a big dog can be much more damaging to a tiny dog. We were able to fix it with a non-invasive approach 👏 (a tape muzzle) because she is only 8 months old 👶(young dogs tend to heal fast) AND her occlusion (jaw alignment) was really good 👍because the fracture was closed and only mildly displaced. However, her x-rays show that Tallulah has a retained 4th premolar baby tooth with two fractured roots and that her 1st molar adult tooth was broken in the fracture, so these things will be addressed as soon as her jaw is more stable and able to withstand a bigger surgery. ✳️Note: The tape muzzle is made so Tallulah can open her mouth enough to eat and drink with it on. ✳️It will come off in as little as 2-3 weeks, and then little Tallulah will come back to have her broken teeth addressed. This tiny snuggly Pomeranian sat on the nurse’s lap the ENTIRE day (before and after her procedure) and was so easy to work with! ❤️ #tapemuzzle #noninvasive #jawfracture #occlusion #tuesdayswithteeth #pomerania #patient #puppypatient #puppy #youngdog #veterinarydentistry #animaldentistry #dentalveterinarian #dentistry #mypetssmile

Skeeter had very bad dental disease which contributed to his broken jaw. These are pictures of his initial break, the healing process and the end result! All healed and doing great! #smallanimalcare #animaldentistry #jawfracture
One of the reasons I have a passion for facial plastic surgery is the variety of interesting cases! For this trauma patient we made an incision in the mouth to access his (subcondylar) mandible fracture. By using an endoscope and specialized 90 degree instruments we were able to precisely reduce the fracture for the best possible result.
If you’ve ever wondered what and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon does, this is a great example of panfacial trauma (multiple broken bones in the face). Basically, what you’re seeing here is plates and screws on each area of the skull where there is a broken bone.
🇧🇷Fraturas condilares são comuns na rotina hospitalar. Acidentes automobilísticos com trauma frontal de maior energia cinética, podem levar as fraturas de condilo e Sinfise mandibular.
Como sinais e sintomas, podem apresentar equimose local, desvio em abertura ipsilateral; mordida aberta contralateral; contato prematuro ipsilateral; diminuição altura posterior; desvio do mento e dor local, com condilo não palpável. Muitas vezes o bloqueio elástico é útil para estabelecer a oclusão previamente a cirurgia.
Paciente vítima de acidente automobilístico, com fratura condilar esquerda, subcondilar com deslocamento Medial. O acesso de escolha foi o pré auricular, com 2 placas 2.0 do sistema load sharing como preconizado pela AO-ASIF. .
🇺🇸Condylar fractures are common at the hospital routine. Traffic accidents with frontal trauma of higher kinetic energy can lead to condylar and symphisis fractures.
We can see as signs and symptoms, they may present local ecchymosis, ipsilateral mouth opening deviation; contralateral open bite; ipsilateral premature contact; decrease rear height; deviation of the chin and local pain, with nonpalpable condyle. These cases not rigid intermaxillary fixation can be useful to establish the occlusion prior to surgery.
Patient victim of traffic accident, with left condylar fracture, subcondylar with Medial displacement. The access of choice was the pre auricular; with 2 plates 2.0 of the load-sharing system as recommended by AO-ASIF.

You know it was a long ass day & late night... when you go to take the dog out before bed at 10...and realize your surgery booties are still on your shoes...and wonder how the af you did not notice that when you took them off 🙄🙄🙄 #latenight #longday #workhard #jawfracture #anesthesia
Bilateral subcondylar fractures from a fall. The condylar necks are thin and the weakest part of this jaw. A fall on the chin will distribute forces to the condyles which will break to protect the cranium. Ivy loops to wire the jaw shut will fix the fractures (aka closed reduction). This type of approach avoids major surgery. #jawsurgery #jawfracture #oralsurgery #oms #omfs #closedreduction #evolutionoralsurgery
