Its symptoms include: Swelling Inflammation Redness Loss of function Difficulty in chewing, breathing and speaking In some cases, the condition of the patient can get critical because of difficulty in breathing and they require urgent care services.

Process of Mandible Fracture Treatment

  • Physical Examination

  • Surgery

  • The Use of Wires, Screws or Metal Braces

  • Physical Therapy

  • Physical Examination

    The surgeon recommends the patient to undergo a proper physical examination that includes x-rays to identify the cause and the site of fracture. This also helps them to know if the patient has suffered other injuries apart from mandible fracture.

  • Surgery

    Depending on the method they have selected, open or closed reduction, surgery is performed for the treatment of the patient. The former treatment option requires the site to be exposed with the help of a surgery. On the other hand, the latter involves intermaxillary fixation. The jaws, in this method, are splinted together in their original position.

  • The Use of Wires, Screws or Metal Braces

    In some cases, the surgeon may also use wires, metal braces or screws for the purpose of stabilising the jaw joints. This step aids the healing of the jawbone.

  • Physical Therapy

    For some patients, physical therapy can be recommended by the surgeon. It helps to rebuild the strength of joints and jaw muscles. Note: The treatment of jaw fracture depends on various factors. These include the type and site of fracture.

  • Suture the Gums

    After the surgery is complete, the surgical area is washed using saltwater. Then, the periodontist sutures the gums. They may also place a bandage over the surgical area for enhanced protection.

Why Should You Get Mandible Fracture Treatment?

  • For Correcting the Fracture of the Jaw:A jaw fracture, usually caused by a major facial trauma as a result of an accident or fall, can greatly impact one’s mouth functions. They may also find it difficult to breathe. Dentists recommend patients to undergo this treatment as it helps to correct the fracture and restore their routine mouth functions.
  • Identifying Other Injuries:The patient has to undergo a series of tests, including x-rays before this surgery. This can help to identify other internal injuries that may have resulted due to the accident or fall.
  • Improved Oral Health:Throughout the healing process, the patient is required to maintain good oral hygiene. This can lead to an improvement in their oral health.
