Facial bite wounds in the maxillofacial region pose a unique challenge to the oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The main aim of the management is to neutralize any chances for infection and provide an infection free environment for wound healing. Most of the patients presented to us within 24 hours of the injury and we present our experience in restoration of esthetics and overall management of the patient. Use of prophylactic antibiotics, wound cleansing followed by primary closure was our treatment of choice.
