Traumatic facial injuries are the fractures of the facial bones like mandibles (lower jaw), maxillae (upper jaw), orbits, palates, noses(nasal notch and nasal crest), zygomas(cheekbones), eye sockets, frontal bones and combinations of these bones. These kinds of facial fractures occur due to interpersonal violence falls, motor vehicle crashes and sport-related accidents. They make up the majority of etiologies for these injuries, which can affect the ability to see, breathe, speak and swallow. After the advent of multiple safety guards like seat belts, airbags, helmet, sports guards, and mouth guards, there has been a significant decline in severe facial trauma when compared to early times. However, unfortunately, these injuries still occur in considerably large number.
Oral and Maxillofacial (OMF) Surgeons play a vital role in the treatment of any such trauma cases. If anyone suffers a facial injury that requires emergency treatment, one must make sure that an OMF surgeon is called for consultation. If a person is unconscious, disoriented, nauseated, dizzy or otherwise incapacitated, call 108 immediately. Do not attempt to move the individual yourself. If these symptoms are not present but the injury is severe or you are uncertain about its severity, take the person to the nearest hospital emergency room as quickly as possible. If you are in Indore you can visit the Global Dental Centre for emergency accidental cases. All facial injuries may not be extensive but would definitely be complex as they could affect an area of the body that is critical to breathing, speaking, eating and seeing.
Facial injuries are one of the most common types of serious injury that occur when the facial bones are broken. Treatment often requires immediate hospitalization. Polytrauma patients can be managed acutely, with the exception of nasal fractures, as many of the facial trauma are treated by closed reduction. In the case of the nasal fracture, it is helpful to wait for a resolution of swelling. Even the fractured quadripod/ quadramalar complex can be managed and often treated from an intraoral approach and a rigid fixation at the zygomaticomaxillary buttress. When maxillofacial fractures are complex or extensive, multiple incisions to expose the bones and a combination of wiring or plating techniques may be needed. The repositioning technique used by the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons depends upon the location and severity of the fracture. In the case of a fracture in the upper or lower jaw, metal braces may be fastened to the teeth and rubber bands or wires can be used to hold the jaws together. In case of patients with few or no teeth, dentures or specially constructed splints may be required to align and secure the fracture. The principles for treating facial fractures are the same as for a broken arm or leg.
Your treatment plan is designed for steady progress, with every phase promptly implemented.
