What Is Broken Jaw Repair?

A fractured or broken jaw occurs when the jawbone is damaged, usually as a result of an accident or injury. Remarkably, it ranks as the tenth most commonly fractured bone in the human body.

Moderate to severe fractures typically require surgical intervention due to potential complications like breathing difficulties or bleeding. Depending on the specific characteristics and location of the broken jaw, a broken jaw repair may be necessary to correct the case.

In cases where the fracture is minor, the jaw has the capacity to heal on its own, often without intervention. To manage the discomfort, pain medications may be prescribed.

Many people often mistake a broken jaw for a dislocated jaw, in which the temporomandibular joint becomes displaced from its normal position. Urgent medical attention is crucial for individuals with a broken or dislocated jaw.

Benefits of Broken Jaw Repair

Jaw repair surgery presents enormous benefits as it addresses various concerns that may arise following a broken jaw:

The Procedure of Broken Jaw Repair

During broken jaw surgery is performed in a controlled environment, where the patient is placed under general anesthesia inside the surgical room. The main steps involved in this surgical intervention include:

1. Making incision

Your surgeon makes an incision inside your mouth, specifically through the gum. This strategic entry point allows the surgical team to reach the precise location of the fracture or break.

2. Bone realignment

With access granted, the broken jawbone is realigned, ensuring the proper stability of the fractured segments. This crucial step paves the way for subsequent restorative measures.

3. Fixation with plates & screws

To securely hold the reconstructed jawbone in place, small plates and screws are used with precision. These delicate yet resilient instruments play a role in promoting the healing process and maintaining the desired alignment.

Risks of Broken Jaw Repair

After the surgery, discomfort and swelling are expected to peak in the initial days, gradually subsiding over the course of several weeks until complete resolution. Other possible complications may include:

Your surgeon will provide detailed post-operative instructions and address any concerns you may have regarding the risks associated with the surgery. Remember to follow their guidance closely and maintain open communication throughout your recovery journey.
