AbstractMandibular fractures are among the most common trauma injuries of the craniomaxillofacial region. This study evaluated the late results of mandibles fractures treated with arch bar. Forty-nine patients were examined clinically and by questionnaires for late results of arch bar treatment. Demographic data (age, sex, etc), trigeminal nerve sensation (Weber test), temporomandibular joint evaluation, masticatory muscle function, and occlusion were recorded. The data were analyzed by &khgr;2 test using Sigma Stat 2.0 software. Fifty-one percent of the patients with angular fractures complained of sensory disturbances. Condylar and angular fractures demonstrated higher levels of pain. According to Pearson &khgr;2 test, a statistically significant relation between angular fracture and tenderness of the internal pterygoid muscles (P = 0.047), angular fracture and cross-bite (P = 0.021), parasymphysial fracture and pain upon wind blowing (P = 0.026), and body fracture and mastication discomfort (P = 0.038) was found. In closed reduction therapy, fracture location of the mandible seems to be more likely correlated in producing particular long-term complications. Regular follow-ups for functional treatments and physiotherapy of chewing muscles and temporomandibular joint, along with removal of occlusal abnormalities, should be considered following arch bar reduction of mandibular fractures.
