Abstract

A technique of applying lag screws for treating fractures of the anterior mandible is presented. A review of 41 patients who had lag screws placed to treat such fractures showed that it is a successful method of providing rigid internal fixation. The advantages of this technique over bone-plate fixation are discussed.
