PurposeThe present study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and stability of 2.0 mm Titanium plates in treatment of mandibular angle fractures.Materials and MethodsA randomized, prospective study was carried out on 17 patients treated by ORIF with 2.0 mm titanium plates. Operative handling of the plate and clinical stability were qualitatively analyzed.ResultsThe 2.0 mm plate showed good intra-operative handling and adequate clinical stability with follow up of 6 months showing good soft tissue healing.ConclusionA single 2.0 mm titanium plate provides easy handling and adequate occlusal stability in the post-operative phase as compared to the traditional 2.5 mm plate without post-operative MMF.
