  • Abstract

    Fractures in the zygomatic bone region are common due to the prominence of the zygomatic bone otherwise known as the check bone with the common causes being violence and road traffic accidents. Since it forms the esthetic aspect of the face, treatment planning has to take into consideration not only the form and function but also the esthetic part of it. The treatment options depend on the mobility of the fragment. Based on the mobility, the treatment possibilities available are observation, closed reduction without fixation, or open reduction with fixation at the buttresses. This review is done to give an insight about the structure of zygoma, cause of zygomatic fracture, and its types along with the various management options available.
