Review on Facial Trauma Management

Most facial fractures require bones to be surgically set in place and fixed using small titanium plates. Rigid fixation of the fracture allows for early mobilization of the bones and a shorter recovery period than non-surgical techniques.
Facial fractures are treated by manually setting the displaced facial bones (reduction) in place and holding them in the correct position (immobilization) for a period of time that allows bones to heal.

Surgical reduction and fixation of fractures yields a more accurate outcome than non-surgical techniques and allows early return to normal function. These surgeries can be performed from inside the oral cavity, leaving no scars on the face.
