Fractures of the upper jaw are known as “maxilla”, and of the lower jaw are known as “mandible”. Maxillary and mandibular fractures are used interchangeably, as both of them refer to jaw fractures or facial fractures. The maxilla fracture includes a broken jaw, a broken nose, orbital bones or eye sockets, and any damage to other facial structure bones. Mandibular fracture is a medical emergency, and at the same time, it is a common occurrence. A jaw bone fracture is likely to block the airway. It has to be treated properly and in time, as it can make the face look disfigured. There is an attached risk of oral cavity, nasal cavity, and therefore, can be life-threatening too. Maxillary fractures account for approximately 6-25% of all facial fractures
A mandible fracture can be a result of a direct trauma. It can affect the temporomandibular joint (the bone connected with the skull and assists in jaw movement). The major causes of this disease include:
Medicine is given prior to the operation which involves a surgical repair of the nerve cells. Antibiotics are also given to reduce the risk of infection, during and post-surgery. If a surgery is required, then your doctor will give preoperative antibiotics.
Different types of surgery are performed, including the manual repositioning of the dislocated segment. This is done with the help of surgical forceps. Sometimes, a fracture splint (plaster) is used to fix the broken bone. Splinting is avoidable, if the doctor does plating or open reduction in the bone. In plating, orthopedic bone plates are used to fix a fracture.
