Rarely appear as isolated fractures, occur together with fractures of the zygomatic-maxillar complex. Its causes include a direct impact (or falling onto a sharp edged or rod-like barrier) to the arch area. The arch, due to its shape is affected by breaking off a part of its curvature (two breakages) thus forming a middle fragment that gets heaved at medial direction, towards the temporal bone.
