Most fractures of the mandible are contralateral owing to its unique shape and types of forces applied during fracture. Triple unilateral fracture of mandible is extremely uncommon and rarely reported in literature. Dentition free segment adds to the challenges of accurate reduction. This case report talks about a case of right parasymphysis, right angle and right subcondylar fracture of mandible in a 21 year old male and the methods employed for reduction. Non dentate segment is reduced first to maintain vertical ramus height followed by reduction of angle and parasymphysis. The difficulty inherent in treating these fractures can be alleviated with the use of proper sequencing and techniques of open reduction and internal fixation.
