Mentions: After local anesthesia, the tuberosity and all molar teeth were repositioned to their original location and fixed by an arch bar and lacerations were sutured. Because utilizing an arch bar to maxillary teeth did not provide enough stabilization of the tuberosity, intermaxillary fixation was used (Figure 3).
