The locking reconstruction plate 2.4 is fixed to the native mandible using
either 2.4 mm or 3.0 mm screws. At least three screws must be present on either
side of the fracture. In the atrophic edentulous mandible fracture, the screws
are generally placed in the symphyseal region and the angular region. The bone
in the symphysis is very often dense cortical bone which may require tapping of
the screw hole.
