Jaw & Face Fractures
When bones or a joint breakage happens in the facial region, then we consider it in facial or jaw fractures. Such fractures are an emergency and instant care is to be done. Upper and lower jaw (maxilla & mandible), nose, cheekbones, area around the eyes are included when trauma to the face may be considered.
Facial & Jaw fractures happen most of the times because of trauma or sudden injury.

Treatment of Jaw and Facial Fractures
Depending upon the injury and severity of damage, the treatment plan is managed separately for every single case. Our specialist oral & maxillofacial surgeons take into account the bones that are affected during the injury and also have to evaluate the organs affected around head and neck.
If the problem is analyzed to be severe, then a maxillofacial surgery would be required. Normally screws, plates or wires are used to solve such fractures.

Cysts and Tumors
In any part of the body outgrowths or tumors can form. Most of them are benign or harmless, however in few cases; they can be taken as a marker for serious situations like an ongoing cancer or similar growths within the body. However, only if a cyst or tumor stays and does not fade away for a longer time, and also keeps on growing and expanding; then we may say that its severity is increasing. Such cysts or tumors that keep on growing and expanding to other organs of the body are called as malignant.
If the cysts or tumors occur on the face, jawbone, oral cavity or below the root of any tooth; then they are categorized as Dental Cysts & Tumors. Their size, location, pain and complexity vary in different individuals. Most of these remain benign and a-symptomatic, but they cause damage to adjacent teeth, jaw bone or other structures if left untreated.
A tumor is abnormal tissue-mass or abnormal growth, whereas; a cyst is referred to a lesion filled with liquid pus or solid content. Excision or removal is the first line or action against both the cysts and tumors.
