Abstract: 

Maxillofacial injuries are one of the byproducts of ‘SPEED ON ROADS’. Despite of employing numerous devices for improving safety measures in motor vehicles, traffic accidents are still among the main reasons of maxillofacial injuries. Notwithstanding, the recent advances in our field, maxillofacial injuries still remain the serious clinical problem due to specificity of this anatomical region. Knowledge of mechanisms of injuries can be helpful in satisfactory trauma prevention.The aim of this study was to find out the incidences and pattern of maxillofacial injuries resulting from road traffic accidents in patients treated in the Department of Dentistry, Jhalawar Medical College from 1st January 2009 to 31st December 2013.
