at paediatric maxillofacial surgery department in Tashkent state dental institute, Uzbekistan in a period of 12
years between January 2007 and December 2018.Out of 757 children with maxillofacial bone fractures, the
majority were aged between 6-18 years (78,6%, n=595). The mean (±SD) age was 9.3±0.5 years and male
to female ratio was 6.2:1. Falls was the most frequent mode of injury (46,9%, n=355). The mandible was
most commonly involved (67.2%, n=509) of the cases. The incidence of paediatrics maxillofacial fractures
in Uzbekistan region was high. The 6-18-year olds and boys were most commonly involved in maxillofacial
