FACIAL FRACTURE AND WOUNDS TREATMENTS
What is facial fracture and wounds treatments?
The treatment options offered will depend on the type and extent of the fracture and any other problems a patient might has at the time.
In general, doctor will bring the broken bones back into a normal alignment (called 'reducing' the fracture) and keep it/them in this place (called 'fixing the fracture'), preventing further injury. Sometimes, depending on the situation, operation will be done to treat this. Sometimes they will need to use plates, screws or wires (or other fixation) inside or occasionally outside the bones to hold the fractures in place.
