Abstract

Background

Several types of bone-plating systems have been evolved to provide proper fixation for the mandibular fractures and osteotomies. The main disadvantage of conventional miniplates system is that the plate must be perfectly adapted to the underlying bone to prevent alterations in the alignment of the segments and changes in the occlusal relationship. The introduction of locking miniplates reconstruction plating systems for the treatment of mandibular fractures and continuity defects has offered certain advantages over other plating systems. The locking miniplates function as internal fixators, achieving stability by locking the screws to the plates. The most advantage of locking screws/plates systems is that it becomes unnecessary for the plate to have intimate contact with the underlying bone, making plate adaptation easier. In this article we report a case of complete displaced mandibular right body and left Parasymphysis fracture, which was operated using locking miniplates.
