Recent researches have recognised limitations of titanium plates and screws fixation post othognathic surgeries. Though widely used and considered as the ‘gold standard’ for rigid fixation; it has its own demerits like, interference with radiological investigations, barrier in growth and healing, secondary surgery for patient’s need in removal of the plates and screws post healing. Although resorb able fixation systems appear advantageous over metal systems; its stability, biodegradation and foreign body reactions are a matter of concern and further investigation.  Purpose:- The purpose of this study was to determine whether bioresorbable fixation system is superior to titanium fixation system in orthognathic surgeries.

Keywords : Orthognathic surgery; Bioabsorbable plate; Biodegradation; Titanium plate; skeletal stability.
