Pearl: reduction and temporary fixation
It can be very helpful to reduce and stabilize the fracture with adaptation
plates to allow appropriate bending of the template and reconstruction plate.
This is particularly applicable in fractures that are widely displaced, mobile,
The adaptation plates are placed on the inferior border to allow excellent
reconstruction plate adaption to the lateral surface of the mandible.
After the locking reconstruction plate has all planned screw holes used, the
adaptation plates are removed.
