Minne Ties Case Report

Curtis Hayes, DDS, recently used Minne Ties in his office to treat a patient with a non-displaced mandible fracture due to an automobile accident. Dr. Hayes summarized his experience on Instagram as follows: "Case completed under local anesthesia in 15 mins. The patient was back to work the same day. Minne Ties minimized patient cost, maximized my chair time, and had better patient outcomes." @coalcreekoms

From the Journals

"A New Classification of Mandible Fractures"

In a January 2022 article published in the British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, S Wareing et al. developed a proposed new mandibular fracture classification to reflect the incidence, treatment and outcome for individual cases. Based on a systematic literature review and internal audit, the authors analyzed a total of 12,718 cases to assess fracture classification and incidences. The internal validation (audit) demonstrated an increasing requirement for MMF in ORIF cases as class of fractures increased. The authors conclude that "the heterogeneity of data reporting found in the systematic review confirms the need for a classification such as this, likely to enhance comparison of varying management protocols."

Once occlusion is confirmed, continue final tightening to ensure that there is no slack on the lingual side of the teeth.


Bloodborne Pathogen Report

The University of Florida's Biological Safety Office in the Department of Environmental Health & Safety recently published its bloodborne pathogen (BBP) training resource guide. The report includes data regarding the risk of bloodborne pathogen exposure, the primary routes of occupational exposure, expected consequences of exposure, and recommended precautions that can prevent exposure. Citing the NaSH Summary Report, 82% of all BBP occupational exposures are percutaneous. Nearly 15% of sharps injuries at UF were experienced in Dentistry and nearly 12% in Otolaryngology.
