Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present the experience with two patients with pseudoarthrosis of mandibular body fractures and unacceptable anesthesia of the lower lip and chin on the affected side. This was corrected by establishing stable fixation with locking screw mandibular plate, microsurgical repair of the inferior alveolar nerve, and filling the fracture gap with an autogeneous bone graft. The combination of these therapies resulted in satisfactory sensory improvement without complications in both patients.
