Abstract— Oral malignancy involving mandible, floor of mouth, tongue, and also palate when treating surgically often requires resection of mandible. Resection of mandible leads to loss of mandibular continuity, deviation of mandible towards resected site, altered mandibular movements, difficulty in swallowing, and impaired speech. Management of this type of mandibular defects without bony reconstruction is complex. Hemimandibulectomy with intermaxillary fixation prevent mandibular deviation and malocclusion.
Keywords: Intermaxillary Fixation, Hemimandibulectomy, Mandibular Deviation.
