Abstract: Background: In cranio-maxillofacial traumas (CMT) the most common and severe damage is Mandible disruption. This result in chronic health issues because of CMT risk of unhealthy state of body has been increased which is related to deformities in face which give rise to many operational limitations and many changes in appearance of damaged face. Objective: To analyze the facial and mandibular damage in accidental injuries and to focus on correct procedure for complete recovery of patients. Results: The damage has occurred with huge amount of energy that causes almost complete tearing of mandibular bone. Disruption of facial and mandible bone in such a way causes many injuries including removal of the skin and subcutaneous tissues of the mandible that distract and affects blood vessels, muscles and nerves of associated area. Conclusion: In this case report we have discussed about a car accidental case having severe mandible damage. Importantly we focus on correct procedures for stabilization of patient, appropriate control of damage and specifically reconstruction of face in better ways.
