OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy and surgical outcome of treatment of anterior mandibular fracture using either 2.0 mm titanium miniplate or 2.4 mm titanium lag screw technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 30 patients were managed by open reduction and internal fixation utilizing the miniplate and lag screw technique for fractures of anterior mandible. The patients were randomly divided into two groups. Group I: (15 patients) were treated with Leibinger, 2.0 mm titanium mini plates… CONTINUE READING
