The need to treat fractures of the mandibular condyle remains controversial, but when the decision to operate has been made, then multiple forms of fixation are advocated. Traditionally, metal plates and screws have been used, but this is thought to have several disadvantages, particularly in the growing skeleton. Resorbable fixation for maxillofacial fractures has not gained widespread acceptance because of technical difficulties with the materials and concern about inflammatory reactions during their resorption...

The surgical management of edentulous mandible fractures presents unique challenges secondary to poor bone stock and the absence of dentition to assist with fracture reduction. In complex injury patterns, such as bilateral edentulous mandible fractures, an external approach is often necessary to achieve adequate reduction and adaptation of a load-bearing reconstruction plate. We report a case in which computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) was applied as an adjunct for the acute management of bilateral edentulous mandible fractures in a 58-year-old man...

The main characteristic feature of the pediatric mandible is that of decreased dimension, which leads to compromises in the open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). In the dental segment, the cervically bulbous short stature primary teeth might act an obstacle during the maxillomandibular fixation conventionally. An increased osteogenic potential of bones favors rapid consolidation and remodeling in the affected region. The mixed dentition of the ugly duckling stage adds more burden while stabilizing the fractured segments...

Background: In recent years, the techniques used to identify human remains post accidents, trauma or in case of criminal investigation have been expanded, improved and rendered more complex by the emergence of technologies based on deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) analysis. In the head and neck area, tooth has been proven to be the best quantitative source for DNA but in certain cases where the mandible specimen is edentulous or the tooth is extensively destroyed with caries, large dental restorations, mobile, or if they show any perimortem or postmortem fractures, sampling of such tooth specimen is usually avoided...

RATIONALE: Familial gigantiform cementoma (FGC) is a rare benign autosomal dominant fibrocemento-osseous lesion generally limited to the facial bones, typically in the anterior portion of the mandible; it is often associated with abnormalities of the long bones and prepubertal pathologic fractures. Owing to the small number of such patients, a uniform treatment criterion has not been established. This paper presents a patient with FGC who was treated in our department, and offers a systematic review of the patients reported in the literature...

Introduction: Treatment of edentulous atrophic mandible with severe atrophy is a challenge based on local conditions and systemic diseases confronted by the age group affected. If bone grafting is indicated, it is often used in lateral or inferior aspects of the mandible. Case Report: A 70-year-old male with a unilateral fracture of the atrophied left mandibular body was managed by lingual bone grafting and inferior border miniplate fixation to prevent two common problems after fracture healing; the need for plate removal before denture fabrication and facial asymmetry in the unilateral body fracture...

Ectopic molars within the mandibular ramus/condyle unit, although rare, present a unique challenge to the surgeon. Multiple approaches have been described in the literature for their removal. A review of the English literature on the subject of mandibular ectopic molars and their epidemiology, etiology, indications for removal, and surgical techniques was completed. In addition, a case report is presented of an ectopic mandibular molar in the mid-ramus region which was removed via a minimally invasive, intraoral, technique combining the use of endoscopy and piezoelectric surgery...

Mandible fractures are the most common result of facial trauma. The proximity of oral flora to the site of both the injury and resulting surgical instrumentation makes managing infection a unique challenge. The benefit of antibiotic prophylaxis at the time of surgical treatment of mandible fractures is well established. However, the routine use of antibiotics between the time of injury and surgery is of unclear benefit. We aim to define the role of antibiotics in the preoperative period: from the time of injury to surgical intervention...

Bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSRO) is commonly used to correct mandibular prognathism or retrognathism. Patients with mandibular prognathism or retrognathism may also present with a prominent mandibular angle. In this paper, we share our experience on BSSRO with mandibular angle resection. Eleven patients who were treated from July 2014 to December 2016 were included in this study. The mandibular angle was resected through the medial side of the mandible after BSSRO. The mandibular angle measurements of the patients changed significantly after surgery (p < 0...
