Minne Ties® Agile MMF (dental occlusion ties) are an innovative, patent pending technology to rapidly, safely and securely achieve maxillomandibular fixation (MMF), or jaw fixation, which is required to manage most jaw-related trauma and jaw surgeries. Unlike traditional arch bars and wires or screw-based systems, Minne Ties are a noninvasive solution that improves surgeon and patient safety, saves time, and provides efficiency and flexibility.

Final tightening is done after all sutures are placed. Sutures are trimmed after tightening.

Apply the recommended four sutures on each side, using the largest size possible to minimize potential floss out.

Minne Ties are threaded through the interdental space and trimmed after application.  The blunt introducer eliminates sharp wires and screws that can puncture gloves and cause injuries to the surgeon and damage to patients' gums and mouth, improving patient safety and comfort.


Application of Minne Ties is simple and takes about a minute per Ties, reducing total procedure time in or outside of the O.R.. Patient management can be done in the Emergency Department or clinic, allowing for more efficient utilization of resources.


Minne Ties are low profile and take significantly less space in the mouth, allowing better visibility and access for plating, and tangle-free suturing during closing.  Using the recommended number of Ties, Minne Ties provide strong, secure and durable MMF.


Minne Ties require less time than arch bars and hybrid systems, saving surgeon and costly O.R. time.  Removal of Minne Ties can be done outside the O.R. without general anesthesia, eliminating the need for additional O.R. time.


Minne Ties - A Valuable Addition to the Surgeon’s Toolbox

Unlike other MMF methods, Minne Ties are non-invasive, eliminating sharp wires and invasive screws to improve surgeon and patient safety.

Featured Case Report

Closed Treatment of a Unilateral Mandible Fracture Using Minne Ties Agile MMF

Briana Burris, DDS

(Massachusetts General Hospital)

A 34-year-old male with excellent premorbid occlusion presented to the Massachusetts General Hospital Emergency Department with facial swelling and lower jaw pain, after sustaining a sports injury. After assessing the patient and performing a CT scan, the ED consulted OMFS regarding the management of the patient’s right parasymphysis fracture. The patient initially requested open treatment to avoid maxillomandibular fixation (MMF), given his significant dental anxiety. The patient was presented Minne Ties Agile MMF as an option and subsequently consented to closed treatment.  One medium and two large Minne Ties were applied on each side of the patient mouth in the clinic under local anesthetic. The total procedure time was approximately 20 minutes.
