AbstractMandibular fractures are less prevalent in children as compared with adults. This is due to the anatomic differences present in children. Treatment of mandibular fractures ranges from conservative noninvasive treatment to open reduction and fixation of fracture site. A case of 12-year-old boy with left parasymphyseal fracture managed by closed reduction using a vacuum-formed splint is reported here.
