Abstract: 
Submental intubation is an alternative to tracheostomy in patients requiring surgical access to both oral and nasal cavities. It is relatively safe, simple, and low morbidity procedure and requires only basic surgical equipment to perform. We successfully performed a submental intubation in a young patient with maxillofacial hypoplasia undergoing Le Fort I maxillary advancement without any intra- and post-operative complications.
