Masakazu Hamada*, Yoshiyuki Ota, Soichi Iwai, Hidetaka Shimizu, Yoshiaki Yura
The authors examined 159 pediatric patients under 6 years old with traumatic injury in the oral and maxillofacial region treated at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery II, Osaka University Graduate School of Dentistry, Japan, between 2009 and 2013. The ratio of boys to girls was 3:2. Out of 159 cases, soft-tissue injury was the most common (71.4%), followed by dental and/or dentoalveolar injury (20.1%), and soft-tissue injury and dental and/or dentoalveolar injury (8.2%). Mandibular fracture accounted for 1.3% of all cases. Falling was the most common cause. Most injuries were confined to dentoalveolar bone. Conservative treatment was useful for greenstick fracture of the mandible.
