Traumatic loss of large portions of the maxilla remains uncommon. Reconstruction demands careful attention to both the anatomy of the primary deformity as well as the associated secondary changes if there is to be acceptable restoration of facial aesthetics and function. In concert with rebuilding the missing maxilla, reconstruction may frequently involve repositioning the apparently undisturbed mandible.
