Mandibular Neoplasms definition: Tumors or cancer of the MANDIBLE.
Mandibular Nerve definition: A branch of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The mandibular nerve carries motor fibers to the muscles of mastication and sensory fibers to the teeth and gingivae, the face in the region of the mandible, and parts of the dura.
Mandibular Prosthesis definition: A prosthetic appliance for the replacement of areas of the mandible missing or defective as a result of deformity, disease, injury, or surgery.
PROSTHESIS, FACIAL, MANDIBULAR IMPLANT definition: A mandibular implant facial prosthesis is a device that is intended to be implanted for use in the functional reconstruction of mandibular deficits. The device is made of materials such as stainless steel, tantalum, titanium, cobalt-chromium based alloy, polytetrafluoroethylene, silicone elastomer, polyethylene, polyurethane, or polytetrafluoroethylene with carbon fibers composite.
Mandibular Advancement definition: Moving a retruded mandible forward to a normal position. It is commonly performed for malocclusion and retrognathia. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
Mandibular Prosthesis Implantation definition: Surgical insertion of an appliance for the replacement of areas of the mandible.
Mandibular Drainage Technique definition: Soft tissue manipulative technique using passively induced jaw motion to effect increased drainage of middle ear structures via the eustachian tube and lymphatics.
Awls, Bone, Mandible definition: Awls designed to make small dents (i.e., to mark) or pierce small holes in the lower jaw bone (i.e., the mandible).
