Rapid Intervention in Jaw and Facial Fractures

Intervention Procedures in Jaw and Facial Fractures

At Lotus Dental Clinic, we have successfully treated many cases of jaw fractures since 2010 thanks to the contribution of my team and the co-operation of my patients. My primary advice in this regard would be to avoid activities with a high risk of accidents as much as possible and to take full protective measures.  

I would like to share this article in order to prevent the mistakes frequently made by patients in jaw fractures and facial traumas and to increase awareness on this issue. 

Injuries to the jaw and face may result in disruption of bone integrity. In accidents involving the head and neck region, the presence of head trauma should be investigated first. For this reason, the patient should first be referred to health should be referred to an institution. 

What should I do in case of a jaw fracture?

  • You should contact the nearest maxillofacial surgeon.
  • If a jaw fracture is suspected, radiological examination should be performed.
  • After the injury and during the treatment period, a soft diet should be fed and chewing should be avoided.
  • When treatment is started, the treatment plan of the maxillofacial surgeon should be followed and his/her recommendations should be strictly followed.

Treatment of Jaw Fracture

Early intervention in jaw fractures and facial trauma is the most important factor for treatment success. That is why treatment should be started without wasting any time.

Since the jaw bones have a complex joint system and are exposed to the forces of many muscles in different directions. Given to the fact that it can be inconvenient and risky to leave them to heal on their own.

Interventions to jaw fractures are usually performed by ligating the jaws together and then fixing the fracture line with osteosynthesis plates.
