SOFT TISSUE INJURIES
For injuries of the hard tissues or the bones of the face, it depends on many factors like the area of the fracture, age & general condition of the patient.Treatment can vary from conservative to surgical management. Surgical management involves the placement of tiny plates & screws. Placement of screws & plates allows the patient to lead a normal life faster. The jaws are at times wired together for proper stabilization of the fractures. The patient follows up has to be done regularly. The treatment should be done in a way that the incisions (access made to reach the fractured site) should be aesthetically pleasing once it heals & the scar is hidden.
