A study of 30 patients suffering from mandibular fracture attended at the Oral Surgery Office was carried out at "Abel Santamaría Cuadrado" General hospital during November 1, 2002 to February 28, 2006. It was aimed at demonstrating the effectiveness of the findings obtained with the reduction of the fracture, fixation and dental occlusion. Findings were analyzed showing a higher incidence in 25 -34 year-old subjects, having the dislocated fractures and the dental factor a higher incidence. In 100% of cases it was observed an anatomic reduction and a proper fixation as well as a good occlusion when the conservative procedure was done.
