Abstract

Fractures involving pediatric jaws most often require a splint to prevent the fragments from being displaced; however, impression making presents a challenge. This article describes the fabrication of a surgical splint over an ideal cast, which is subsequently refitted with a tissue conditioner onto the patient's jaw. The highlight of this technique is the elimination of an impression procedure, thereby reducing clinical and laboratory time and easing pain in the child.
