Facial Fractures
Facial fractures refer to broken bones in your face. This type of facial trauma (also called maxillofacial trauma) can happen if you’re involved in an accident, such as a car crash or fall. Facial fractures are also common among victims of physical assault and gunshot wounds. Your facial bones are thinner than a lot of other bones in your body, making them prone to injury.
Types of Facial Fractures
A mandible facial fracture, also known as a mandibular fracture or jaw fracture, refers to a break or fracture in the lower jawbone (mandible). It is a relatively common type of facial fracture and can occur due to various causes, such as trauma, accidents, sports injuries, or physical altercations.
Mandible fractures can result from different types of trauma, including:
• Direct impact: A direct blow to the jaw, such as from a punch or a sports-related injury, can cause a fracture.
• Motor vehicle accidents: High-velocity collisions or accidents involving the face can result in mandible fractures.
• Falls: A fall onto the face or jaw can lead to a jawbone fracture.
• Physical altercations: Fights or assaults can result in fractures of the jawbone.
The maxilla is the upper jawbone in the human skull. It is a paired bone that forms the central part of the facial skeleton. A maxilla fracture, also known as a fracture of the upper jawbone, refers to a break or fracture in the maxilla bone. This type of fracture typically occurs due to significant trauma or injury to the face.
The zygomatic bone, also known as the cheekbone or malar bone, is a paired bone in the human skull that forms the prominence of the cheek. A zygomatic fracture, also known as a cheekbone fracture, is a break or fracture in the zygomatic bone, which forms the prominence of the cheek. It typically occurs as a result of significant trauma or injury to the face.
An infraorbital fracture, also known as an orbital floor fracture or blowout fracture, refers to a fracture or break in the thin bone that forms the floor of the eye socket (orbit). It typically occurs as a result of significant trauma or impact to the face, such as a direct blow or forceful injury.
