Facial fractures usually occur after trauma to the face. This trauma may be the result of a motor vehicle collision, a work-related accident, a fall or an assault. Most patients will have imaging of their face, which could be a X-Ray or CT scan. Dr. Silverman will ask you questions regarding your eye sight, how your teeth line up and if there is any numbness to your face. He will also examine your face. Surgical procedures could include manipulating broken bones to align the pieces. Depending on the location of the fractured bones and the severity of the fractured bones may necessitate the use of plates and screws to fix the bones.
