In brief: Pain after injury

The vast majority of facial fractures happen after a trauma- car wreck, assault, fall.
You should have sought emergency care; thry should have examined with hands and maybe ct scan to look for these. If it's far after the event, you may notice that the teeth don't fit together normally, there are changes in the coutours/rough edges when touching the face, there's pain or the eye(s) may sink in.

In brief: Pain and swelling

Pain and swelling after trauma are the most common.
There are many bones in the face, and many different types of fractures, and each one is going to have its own specific symptoms. Some facial fractures, like an orbital floor, may not have many symptoms at all. A CT scan is needed to make the diagnosis

In brief: Facial Fractures

The symptoms of a facial fracture depend on the bone that is fractured.
Jaw fractures often cause pain with chewing and teeth not fitting together properly. Fractures around the eye socket and cheek can lead to double vision, black eyes, and changes in your appearance. Nasal fractures can cause nose bleeding, difficulty breathing, and changes in your appearance.
