Wire Crimpers, Surgical, Oral/Maxillary
Definition : Surgical wire crimpers designed for bending or tightening metallic wires to the maxilla and/or other oral tissue. These crimpers are typically a pliers-like, sturdy, handheld instrument with appropriate size and conformed jaws to manipulate wires around the maxilla and/or in the oral cavity. Oral/maxillary surgery wire crimpers are used mainly in procedures intended to fix bones in a fractured maxilla or to correct malpositions of the jaw bones (i.e., orthognathic surgery).
