Abstract: Background: To investigate the occupational profile, educational level, marital status and deleterious habits to the health of patients with maxillofacial fractures of a population of northeastern Brazil. Material and Methods: A retrospective study of patients records admitted to the Division of Oral and Maxillofa - cial Surgery at the Walter Cantídio University Hospital (Fortaleza, Brazil) who sustained maxillofacial fractures was conducted in the period between 2006 and 2015. Results: A total of 338 patients rendered 355 fractures. Males were the most affected ( p <0.001), with prevalence in the third decade of life ( p <0.001). There was a predominance of motorcycle accidents ( p <0.001), home workers ( p <0.001), low educational status ( p = 0.032), and no cigarette use ( p <0.001) or alcohol ( p = 0.023). Fractures of the zygomatic-orbital complex were the most prevalent in the sample ( p <0.001). Conclusions: The sociodemographic profile exerted a significant influence on the epidemiological profile of maxil - lofacial fractures in a Brazilian population during the study period.
