 en Management of Mandibular Fracture in a Peripheral Health Setting with Limited Resources: a Case Report
Sohal, K. Singh & Moshy, J.

Abstract

Mandibular fractures are a common form of facial injury in adults and occur most frequently in males during the third decade of life. Non-surgical treatment is frequently preferred if sufficient teeth are present, even where there are quite serious dislocations.The ultimate objective of managing a mandibular fracture is to reduce and stabilize the fracture, obtain a functional occlusion, and normal anatomy of the jaw.This article aims to address the method used in the management of the current mandibular fracture and difficulties faced by the dental professionals, working in settings where availability of materials for managing fractures of the mandible is very limited.
