Abstract

More stable fixation and greater resistance against infection are achieved in mandibular angle fractures if the two-miniplate-fixation technique is used. One plate is applied at the superior border and a second plate is applied at the inferior border of the buccal cortex. Strong support for this argument was demonstrated in these in vitro and pilot clinical studies. It is concluded that the two-miniplate-fixation technique is indicated in cases of mandibular angle fracture to achieve stability of the fracture site and early mobility of the jaw.
