Road accidents, industrial accidents and engaging in sporting activities are responsible for most fractures of the midface. A careful history, oral and facial examination and radiographs are imperative whenever any fracture is suspected. Treating edentulous or partially dentate patients of maxillary /mandibular fracture with gunning splints is the standardized procedure followed. For the elderly patients it becomes difficult to do open reduction surgery due to various complications and compromised medical conditions. The complication rate of infection or mal-union is higher as compared to fractures in younger dentulous patients. The present article discusses a case where a patient who had met a road accident was treated with gunning splint which was customized suiting the prevailing condition as only few teeth were present at the time of trauma.
