Mandibular fracture is one of the most common facial skeletal injuries. Although its main causes are road traffic accident and violence, the relation these causes varies from one country to another. The principles of the treatment of mandibular fractures have changed recently, although the objective of re-establishing the occlusion and masticatory functions remains the same. Splinting of teeth is an old way of immobilizing fractures but the advent of modern biomaterials has changed clinical practice towards plating the bone and early restoration of function. This is a case report of displaced fracture parasymphysis on right side and body of mandible on left side which was treated with open reduction and internal fixation using Champy’s mini plating system.
