Mandible Fractures account for 5% of all facial fractures. The most common of mandible fractures are those in the condylar region followed by angle and then by body fractures. A good thing about Mandibular Fractures in children in comparison to adults is that their embedded tooth buds hold the mandible fragments like a glue. Also, the condylar neck which is short and thick tends to resist the fracture therefore the majority of mandible fractures in children are of un-displaced type. The purpose of the present case series is to demonstrate a conservative and effective treatment modality for the pediatric mandibular fractures with cap splints, which limited the discomfort and morbidity while taking care of the anatomical, physiological, and psychological complexity of developing jaw in children.
Keywords: Mandibular fractures, Condylar neck, Cap splints, Morbidity.
