Abstract

Edentulous or atrophic mandible fractures are rare and potentially problematic for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon. With the loss of teeth, atrophy of the alveolar bony apparatus ensues, creating a mandible more prone to fracture. This article describes the management of edentulous/atrophic mandibular fractures.
