Background: Mandibular fractures can involve any of the anatomic sub-sites with simultaneous multiple sites involvement. Hence; under the light of above mentioned data, the present study was undertaken for assessment of 114 mandibular fracture cases among known population. Materials & methods: A total of 114 cases of mandibular fracture were analysed. A master chart was prepared and complete clinical and demographic details of all the patients were obtained from the data record files. Retrospective radiological examination was carried out in all the patients for analysing the clinical site and pattern of injuries involving the mandible. Also detail description of the clinical pattern of fracture cases was obtained from the record files. All the results were recorded in Microsoft excel sheet and was analysed by SPSS software. Results: Ramus was the most site of mandibular fracture found to be present in 20.18 percent of the cases. Fracture of coronoid process and condyle was found to be present in 19.30 percent and 18.42 percent of the cases. Fracture of body of mandible and angle of mandible was found to be present in 13.16 percent and 16.67 percent of the cases. Open fractures were found to be present in 20.18 percent of the patients while closed fractures were found to be present in 79.82 percent of the patients. Conclusion: Mandibular fractures are most common among middle aged males at ramus, coronoid process and condylar region.
