Abstract

BACKGROUND: Maxillary trauma in pediatric patients is a challenge to health care professionals. The successful treatment and extended care of pediatric maxillary fractures requires multiple considerations. METHODS: This review of the current literature investigates all components of management to provide optimal outcome. Specifically, pediatric management distinctions are discussed for both facial reconstruction and rehabilitation. The current etiology, incidence, classification of injury, and methods to diagnose and treat these patients is outlined. CONCLUSIONS: Pediatric maxillofacial fractures remain a challenging problem. The management of this patient population includes comprehensive knowledge of pediatric maxillofacial growth and development, available reduction techniques, biocompatible materials, and duration of the selected therapy.
