All Buttoned Up

Robin Hood came home with his tongue sticking out, jaw hanging, and blood from his nose. He had a fractured and dislocated mandible (lower jaw bone).  We reduced the dislocation and realigned the jaw. To stabilize the mandibular symphysis (junction of both sides of the jaw), Dreena donated a button. The fracture healed in 3 weeks and we removed the wires.  Dreena told us to keep the button!
