facial trauma

Mandibular, condyle and maxillary fractures:
Everything you need to know

Facial fractures are common in traumatology, and within them, mandibular, condyle and maxillary fractures are the reason for numerous consultations in the Emergency Services. These fractures are generally produced by impacts on the lower third of the face, being the most frequent traffic accidents, sports and assaults.

It is important to know that mandibular and condyle fractures can cause the inability to open the mouth fully, changes in the fit of the teeth, and facial deformities. While maxillary fractures can generate deformities in the nose, eyes and cheeks. Therefore, early diagnosis and treatment are essential to avoid complications and achieve adequate recovery.
