They commonly include fractures of the upper jaw, lower jaw, cheeks, and nose or eye sockets. A closed fracture is one in which the skin is not broken. An open or compound fracture involves laceration of the skin.

Facial fractures can result in considerable pain, swelling and discomfort. In extreme cases facial fractures can result in disfigurement, which can have profound psychosocial implications, including altered body image, reduced quality of life, and poor self-esteem.
