Mandibular angle fractures are frequently observed. Not only the angle is a weak transition region, but the presence of impacted third molar tooth also plays an important role in the development of mandibular angle fractures. Fractures of the mandibular angle are usually isolated, whereas bifocal mandibular fractures usually involve a different region, such as symphysis or condyle. In fact, mandibular fractures involving both mandibular angles are rare. The aim of the present article was to present a case report of a Biangular Mandibular Fracture, along with its characteristics and surgical management.


KEY WORDS: Mandible; Fractures, bone; Disease management
