Jaw and Facial Injuries and Fractures

Trauma to the facial bones after a fall, traffic accident or assault is called maxillofacial injury. Fractures in this region can cause facial deformities if left untreated.

Fractures of the lower and upper jaw bones can cause disorders in biting and speech functions. Fractures of the cheekbone can prevent the movement of the jaw. Treatment of jaw fractures is possible and for this reason, an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery specialist should be consulted without losing any time.
