In brief: Stabilization

Metal plates and screws are used to stabilize bone fragments that might otherwise easily become displaced.
They allow the fragments to stay in juxtaposition and proper alignment so they can grow bony interconnections to re-establish the natural stability of these bones after fracture displacement.
