Submental intubation is a technique for use in maxillofacial trauma, which allows precise assessment of changes to the nasolabial complex, midlines, cants, and incisal display in patients having maxillary orthognathic surgery. We report our initial experience of it used as an adjunct in the management of orthognathic surgery in a series of 44 patients.
