Abstract

Odontogenic myxoma and particularly juvenile fibromatosis are rare benign tumors in the maxillo-facial region. The aggressive local and sometimes voluminous development of these tumors may necessitate partial mandibulectomy. Autologous bone graft from the iliac crest is the best material for mandibular reconstruction because of its functional and esthetic results. If osteosynthesis of the graft is achieved by means of internal wiring, several weeks of intermaxillary fixation are required, whereas internal rigid fixation with plate and screws allows the patient to open the mouth more rapidly.
