Broken Jawbone After Accident?

, I am 23, a month ago I fell and fractured my jawbone. And the doctor who treated me said as long as it didn’t interfere with chewing, it didn’t matter, there was no need for surgery. My question is the effect of a broken or cracked bone can it be exposed to water? Because every time I take a shower, I dare not wash my face with water. Please guide. And can the jawbone under my eye return to its original shape or not? Thank you

Hello Sigit Ale, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Fractures in the jaw sometimes do not require any therapy if the fracture is mild, there is no bone shift, the position is stable (the fracture does not move), and does not interfere with function (eg does not interfere with chewing). Because it occurs under the skin and there are no open wounds through the bone, you can still wash your face without worrying. There are no particular side effects that will occur in your fracture when your skin is exposed to water.

What you need to pay attention to is don't eat too hard food first until your doctor allows it, you shouldn't do a lot of activities that require a lot of jaw movement such as laughing too hard or opening your jaw too wide (if the fracture occurs in the lower jaw), and avoid injury repeated or impact on the face and jaw area.

If the fracture does not shift (only a fracture occurs), it is likely that the bone will be able to return to its original shape within a few weeks to a few months (depending on what fracture is in the bone and the condition of the fracture).

That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
