A fracture is a broken bone. Facial fracture refers to any injury that results in a broken bone or bones of the face.
23 year old female came to MFD with a class 3 bite preventing her from chewing properly
and causing wearing of teeth due to only back molars touching. We did a Lefort 1 and a Bilateral Sagittal Split Ramus
Osteotomy which corrected her bite and balanced her facial features.
Because the patient's nose will be very swollen at initially, a broken nose is not immediately put back into place (reduced).
Even after the swelling improves, reducing a broken nose is necessary only if the patient will have a poor cosmetic result
or airflow is obstructed. If it is necessary, a specialist will perform the procedure at a follow-up appointment. By this time,
the swelling should have improved, and the bone should be put in place more accurately.
