Aim: Treatment by the multidisciplinary-team approach for jaw fractures, and the role of the orthodontist, are discussed and illustrated through case reports. Methods: Two cases of jaw fractures treated with orthodontic techniques, as an alternative noninvasive procedure, are presented. One subject with a fresh mandibular fracture did not consent to surgery, despite a good indication for open reduction. The other subject had maljoined mandibular fractures from surgery, with insufficient occlusal consideration. Conclusion: Orthodontists, as well as oral surgeons, participate in every stage of the treatment of jaw fractures, including treatment decisions, in-patient management, dietary guidance, etc. Orthodontists also attend surgical operations to determine the most stable occlusion, making possible more detailed occlusal reconstruction.
