Facial Fractures

Most frequently, facial fractures are a result of trauma, such as motor vehicle accidents, physical altercations, industrial accidents, falls, and contact sports.

These fractures need to be diagnosed and addressed immediately. They may be managed conservatively or surgically under local or general anesthesia depending on the extent of the injury.

Untreated fractures may lead to complications like malocclusion, scars and
other residual defects.

Hence accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment are the keys to managing facial fractures.

Braced with knowledge of the Oro- facial structures and dentition, an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon is best qualified to treat facial fractures.
