Inferior alveolar nerve transposition is a useful adjunctive surgery in implant dentistry when there is insufficient bone between the ridge crest and the inferior dental canal. However, if this surgery is done carelessly, complications such as mandibular fracture and permanent lower lip numbness can occur. This article reports the first case of bilateral mandibular body fracture occurring during inferior alveolar nerve transposition. The surgical management of a complicated bilateral displaced mandibular body fracture is explained herein. A literature review of mandibular fracture after inferior alveolar nerve transposition is also presented. Adhering to the principles of fracture, treatment is mandatory for the successful management of mandibular fracture after inferior alveolar nerve transposition.
