Alternative Treatments For Jaw Fractures?
Is it traditional medicine or alternative medicine to treat jaw fracture ..
Thank you for the question.
The jaw is formed by a combination of two bones, namely the maxillary (maxillary) and lower (mandible) bones which articulate in the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint). Broken bones in the jaw can be many types, can be closed / open, can only crack / shift / break, can occur in the upper / lower jaw / joint area, and so on. Depending on the type, symptoms of jaw fractures can vary.
Jaw fractures, both the upper and lower jaw are definitively treated by surgery. This operation can be done with a variety of procedures depending on the type of fracture. With surgery, the potential for complications, such as internal bleeding, infection, malunion, non-union, and so on can also be minimized. The process of healing a broken jaw will be much faster with surgery. Therefore, the jaw area is an area that has high mobility, especially often moved when eating and talking, so that inadequate handling can greatly hinder the healing process of broken bones. Before or after surgery, your doctor can give you some medicines, which aim to improve clinical symptoms, minimize infection, and also speed recovery.
So far, other alternative therapies have not been found to be effective in overcoming broken jaw bones. Therefore, we do not recommend that you try alternatives recklessly, but check yourself directly to the oral surgeon.
I hope this helps.
