What is facial fracture repair?

Common causes of facial fracture

Facial fractures can occur due to a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: High-impact crashes can cause severe facial trauma, leading to fractures in the facial bones.
  • Sports injuries: Contact sports like football, hockey, or wrestling often result in injuries to the face.
  • Falls: Falling from a height or even tripping and falling can result in facial fractures, especially in older adults due to osteoporosis.
  • Physical assaults: Violent attacks can lead to facial fractures.
  • Workplace accidents: Certain jobs that involve heavy machinery or heights can have a higher risk of facial injuries.
  • Recreational activities: Activities like biking, skateboarding, or rollerblading without proper safety equipment can lead to accidents causing facial fractures.
  • Pedestrian accidents: Being struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian can result in severe facial injuries.
  • Childhood injuries: Children can sustain facial fractures from playground accidents or falls from bikes or scooters.
