Abstract

Patients with wired jaws will be required to face a whole new lifestyle for up to 6 weeks following maxillofacial surgery. Changes in their lifestyles include relearning ways to care for their bodies, to eat their meals, and to communicate with family and health care professionals. Proper presurgical patient education is essential in order for these patients to gain confidence regarding self-care and for wounds to heal properly.
