In brief: Facial fracture

A fracture means a break.
Whether it is in bone, a solid organ (liver or kidney), or other body tissue (such as cartilage), it is just that--broken. There are many facial bones, all which may be "fractured" hence "fractured nose", "fractured jaw", "fractured eye socket".

In brief: Facial Fracture

Facial fractures occur with a blow to the face, usually a softball, baseball, fist, fall, or some other impact.
Various bones of the face can become fractured and possibly displaced. The degree of displacement of the bone from its original position determines the necessity of intervention. This may mean a quick nasal fracture reduction with local anesthesia or something more involved in the o.R.

In brief: Facial bone fracture

Facial fractures can involve nose, orbit, sinus, cheek bone and jaw or mandible to name a few bones.
If fractures are severe, surgery may be needed to reduce the fractures.
