Mandibular fractures contribute to a significant portion of maxillofacial injuries. In comparison to adult fractures, pediatric fractures are approached differently due to the stage of mixed dentition, the elasticity of the craniofacial skeleton, and the potential for remodeling of the bone and fracture site with growth. Treatment principles of mandibular fractures differ from that of adults due to concerns regarding mandibular growth and development of the dentition. A case of a 7-year-old boy with fractured mandible managed by closed reduction using an open occlusal acrylic splint and circum mandibular wiring is presented as well as restoration of first permanent molars with molar incisor hypomineralization with direct composite onlays.
