Impacted tooth extraction is one of the most common operations in oral surgery. Although practitioners may encounter a variety of complications in the surgical period, mandibular fracture is rare and generally seen during third molar removal. It is reported that possible predisposing conditions include increased age, mandibular atrophy, concurrent presence of cyst or tumor, and osteoporosis. The detection of jaw fractures occurring in tooth extraction may be difficult. Moreover, treatment should be done immediately.
