About Altered facial bone structure
Altered facial bone structure could be due to maxillofacial trauma. Maxillofacial trauma includes injuries to any of the bony or fleshy structures of the face. Any part of the face may be affected. The lower jaw (mandible) may be dislocated by force. Although anchored by strong muscles for chewing, the jaw is unstable in comparison with other bones and is easily dislocated from the temporomandibular joints that attach it to the skull. A fractured nose or jaw may affect the ability to breathe or eat. The symptoms that could accompany an Altered facial bone structure include pain, bruising, swelling, or tenderness along the jaw or below the ear, inability to bring the teeth together properly (malocclusion), bruising under the tongue (almost always indicates a jaw fracture), missing or loose teeth, numbness in the lower lip or chin.
