The majority of Le Fort I fractures in edentulous patients with atrophic maxilla would be treated by observation and a soft diet.
The clinician is encouraged to remove the patient's dentures to ensure that he/she are not chewing during the healing process.
For aftercare and rehabilitation following observation please refer to your local protocol.
