Purpose: to prevent deficits of maxillary and mandibular growth in case of fractures of the oral and maxillofacial area in children. In fact, it is known that every traumatic event on the facial grown’s centers can alter the maxillofacial development.
It is very important to carry out a prompt diagnosis and than warrant the right treatment for the patient to heal him and to prevent deficits of facial growth. So, in this work, we focused the several specific surgical and non-surgical techniques necessary to treat the little patients preventing deficits of facial growth.
Methods: In the Maxillofacial Surgery Department of the University of Sassari, from 2004 to 2009, we surgically treated 16 cases of pediatric facial fractures: 8 cases of mandibular fractures, 4 cases of zygomatic fractures, 2 cases of orbital fractures and 2 cases of maxillary fractures.
Results: All these cases were successfully treated. Every patients are subjected to a follow up to early find possible complications and to solve them.
Conclusions: We think that a scrupulous therapeutic plan is required to achieved an ideal treatment of a child with trauma, to warrant a right facial growth.
