The aim of this case report is to present the treatment method used for a 6-year-old boy patient with a history of mandibular fracture due to fall from rooftop 2 days back. Treatment principles of this patient differ from that of an adult due to concerns regarding mandibular growth processes and dentition development. The goal of this fracture treatment is to restore the underlying bony architecture to its preinjury position in a stable fashion as noninvasively as possible and with minimal residual esthetic and functional impairment.
