Hand & Wrist Broken Bones & Injuries
Human bite wounds are most often inflicted by children. They can be caused directly (by a person deliberately biting another person) or indirectly (by striking a tooth with a hand, such as by a punch to the mouth).
The most common complication of a human bite is infection – human mouths contain a wide variety of bacteria, and an infection in even a small wound can quickly turn into a severe joint infection. Conservative treatment with antibiotics and skin closure is often possible, but surgery may be required to repair severe damage.
