In brief: 6 wks w/ proper care

Most fractures take approximately 6 weeks to heal assuming proper care.
Finger fractures, although may sound unimportant, can lead to deformity and pain if not properly evaluated and treated. Be sure to see your doctor (family doctor, internist or orthopedic surgeon) for best results.

In brief: Broken finger

Depends on how bad the fracture is, whether in is into a joint, or did it pierce the skin or whether there are any complications such as infection.
