Facial Bone Fracture

Facial Bone Fracture

Facial fractures are damaged bones anywhere on the face, including the nose, cheekbones, area around the eyes, and the upper and lower jaw.

Symptoms of a facial fracture

Symptoms of a nose fracture:

  • Bruises on the skin caused when blood leaks from broken blood vessels
  • Discolouration under the eyes
  • Stoppage of nostrils or a deviated septum
  • Twisted or crooked nose or indented bridge
  • Twisted Jaw 
  • Altered face structure

Symptoms of an orbital fracture:

  • Blurry, decreased or double vision
  • Trouble in eye movements
  • Swelling of forehead or cheek or puffiness under the eyes
  • The flatness of the cheeks
  • Sunken or bulging eyeballs
  • Facial numbness near the injury
  • Discolouration in the sclera (white part of the eye)

Symptoms of upper or lower jaw fractures:

  • The trouble with chewing, eating or speaking
  • Loose, broken or missing teeth
  • Teeth not fitting together properly
  • Cheek pain when opening the mouth

How are facial fractures treated?

  • Your doctor may suggest pain-reducing drugs, as well as some antibiotics if there’s a high risk of infection.
  • In general, performing a closed reduction or open reduction may cure fractures. For a complex injury with multiple broken bones, one might need reconstructive surgery.
  • The type of handling will depend on the location and level of the injury. Treatment for facial fractures intends to reconstruct the normal appearance and function of the injured areas.
